Legal trouble for Google phone from sci-fi writer’s estate
With Google looking to launch it’s much awaited Nexus One phone the daughter of science fiction writer Philip K Dick’s claims that the name is associated with her father’s book “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”
The writers popular work went on to become Blade Runner, but his estate is likely to become more famous not for the work of Philip K Dick’s but for the battle with the search giant Google.
But this is a case of many angles, Google’s phone will be called Nexus One and no doubt their lawyers have done their homework.
In the book the androids are called Nexus-6 and so there is only a use of the word Nexus, which apparently dates back a couple hundred years.
