Clearwire drops phone plans, SE drops lawsuit

Sony Ericsson has announced that it has dropped its lawsuit against Clearwire. Sony Ericsson had filed suit in January claiming that Clearwire's logo looked too similar to its own. An injunction was sought to stop Clearwire from using its swirl logo as the company had decided to enter the smartphone space. Clearwire recently told the court that it has dropped its plans to release its own phone, which has prompted Sony Ericsson to withdraw its suit.

Sony Ericsson had claimed that, "Clearwire's use of logos that are strikingly and confusingly similar to Sony Ericsson's recognized, federally registered logos is illegal and should be enjoined."

Sony Ericsson's published statement on the conclusion of the matter states that it, "remains focused on preventing consumer confusion and protecting its trademarks, especially in the field of mobile devices." [via Android Central]
