Re(1): Symantec asks G4L to stop infringing on Ghost name

Posted by: msetzerii on October 07, 2007 11:05 PM
Just as a note. Another company had trademarked the word ghost in the area of computers, and don't know how they had used the word, but the trademark search shows them with the trademark, but somewhere in the system it was later transfered to symantec. And with the original create of the Ghost program, it was an acronym. From Wikipedia. The name Ghost originated as an acronym for "General Hardware-Oriented System Transfer". Again, I wasn't the one that created the project, and it would appear that like others, the creation of these projects was a result of Ghost not doing the job for whatever reason. I agree that Ghosting at the very least has become a generic term, but don't know how that would link to the root of the word ghost. Thanks for taking the time to reply. I do check on all of the replies, good, bad or otherwise. Just waiting on word from Sourceforge on my options.
