idn acronyms that look the same as english version - ok, not ok?
 
I was thinking of doing an acronym in a foreign script but it looks exactly like the ascii version. Is that going to be a problem?

Thanks,

ie: cryllic? who knows if mp3.com would go after mp3.com in cryllic etc

If the lawyers have money they will pursue it most likely.

Funny, I put in mp3 in cryllic and it is taken accross the board.
I suppose those lawyers need billable hours.

мр3 mp3

The lowercase Cyrillic м is not the same the Latin m. Furthermore, the Latin lowercase m is read as a "t" in Russian.
