Just imagine if Newtek were like Microsoft and sued this company for using their name. Remember that kid in Canada who made www.Mikerowesoft.com . His website only sounded like Microsoft and he got sued. Also a company that makes makeup named a color Metallica and of course they got sued by none other than Metallica the band.

But seriously.........how is it that there's another company or product using the same name? Heck, even the text of the logo is pert near identical. What up with that?

Maybe Chuck is branching out?
Buy the LW9 upgrade and get a free set of pans..

Dunno ;) But you're right about the text logo, I thought that, dunno if there is anything they can do about it.

Maybe get the company to give all Newtek employees a full set of kitchenware for free? :p

If NeTek owns the Trademark they can take that other company to the cleaners.

I think the main 'problem' is that really no one but Lightwave users really know about NewTek. It was only untill I started looking for Tuts that I came across this site, and it was only a couple of days afterward that I realized NewTek was the company, and Lightwave merely a product.:D

I think the law on this states that you can use i.e. NewTek as a company name if the company you are starting does not in any way work with the same things as the original NewTek. (It does in Norway anyway) In this case, I doubt NewTek has lost a lot of customers because of this...

Also, NewTek is only used as part of a product name: "SCANPAN Ceramic Titanium CLASSIC NEW TEK Cookware"

But who can blame them, NewTek means quality, right?? :D
