Recently SEDO started making a strange demand...

Recently SEDO started making a strange demand.

The lawyers for SEDO in the US started mailing letters to bloggers and webmasters demanding they don't put the words SEDO and GERMAN or SEDO and Deutschland in the same sentence.

Does anybody know what's going on here?

Is that a corporate schizophrenia?

SEDO Deutschland and SEDO USA might be planning a split from each other. Probably the USA office has been misbehaving. I have heard stories of SEDO USA employees operating with unethical behaviour.

That would be one way to ensure that all bloggers and webmasters incorporate exactly those words in the same sentence- reverse psychology

Re: Recently SEDO started making a strange demand...

True - SEDO Germany strikes me as a good alternative as well :p
Guess they will have to stop trading in .de domains & German IDNs (just in case someone mentions that no no word on the sales thread - humerous - lol)

Also agree, is funny that they even think that someone can control millions of bloggers & webmasters with a letter (when half of them probably do not care about SEDO USA anyway & some will not even know who they are I dare say).

Hope it backfires on them if the ethical issues are true - cheers, Asiaplay

PS: off to buy some .us domains for blog site use - maybe some mirrors to non-USA controlled domains as well (all pages to have SEDO Deutschland, German and Germany links at the bottom).
Guess if successful can post of SEDO and let them buy off me for a high amount - haha...
This one has given me my giggle for the day

There is a pissing contest right now between SEDO, Google &
www.GoogleWords.com

There are some TM issues with the word google itself, since google is a generic word.

The Meaning of Google

"Googol" is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. The term was coined by Milton Sirotta, nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, and was popularized in the book, "Mathematics and the Imagination" by Kasner and James Newman. Google's play on the term reflects the company's mission to organize the immense amount of information available on the web.
