Symantec asks G4L to stop infringing on Ghost name

I thought GHOST as in COPY was trademarked before Symantec anyway?

Remember playing hard driving with the "GHOST" competition in the 80s

Thats where GHOST comes from from my recollection. Now anything thats a copy and has the term 'GHOST' to me doesn't shout any trademark at all. When I copy a folder to a new hard drive, I'd call that a GHOST (have done so for decades). I didn't use anything by symantec to do it.

Anyway, Symantec have it trademarked and lawyers know their stuff, so best to do a Ghandi and Passively resist ;-)
