Skype vs Sky name dispute revealed

August 11th, 2010

Documents filed by internet phone company Skype for its flotation have revealed a long-running dispute with BSkyB over the legal rights to the ‘Sky’ part of its name.

Skype has fought off legal challenges against its name in Switzerland, Turkey and Brazil since 2005, though the EU upheld Sky’s complaint, which Skype intends to appeal against. Sky claims that the brand names will confuse the public.

The five-year legal battle came to light when Skype, which has 560m registered users worldwide, filed documents for a Wall Street flotation in a bid to raise up to $100m (£63m), according to a news report in The Guardian.

Skype has given no comment. But the company warned in its IPO filing: ‘If BSkyB or other third parties were to pursue litigation to prevent our use of the Skype name or logo, defending against that litigation could be costly and time-consuming even if we were ultimately to prevail.’
