European court: Skype's name too similar to Britain's Sky broadcasting

Microsoft has lost another round in its battle to use the name Skype with the British Sky Broadcasting Group.

A European court ruled Tuesday that Microsoft cannot trademark Skype, its popular Internet-calling service, in Europe because its name and logo is too similar to the longtime British broadcasting company.

The story is too old to be commented.

Why didn't Skype have these problems when they weren't owned by Microsoft?
