Been quite a while since I had trademark/copywright business law... IMO,
what makes a violation, isn't just the name, it's the name plus the reference.
If you use quattro (lower case is more protected than upper case IMO, but I
bet both) *and* reference one of Audis machines in pic or print, you are up
for exposure. You reference quattro and have a picture of a bassett hound
pulling a crosscountry skier, no violation.
Don't think for a minute 'they can't', they can, they do, and it's only
money. _quattro at coimbra_ (mailto:quattro at coimbra) was preemptive,
audiquattroparts and audiconnection were real recent chases of the trademark violations.
F-U sounds really macho, till Audi climbs in your back pocket and starts
taking everything you have, including the q's you once owned. I say best to not
stir the nest boys.

Well I also think QuattroPro software was out long before the Audi
was...maybe they need to go back and revisit haa haa...
I was thinking of making my site more like a spreadsheet, so people could
enter their own VIN and any info and pictures so others can do quick view
etc...but i'm a long ways off on having time. (assuming Audi does not come along?
and i dont think urquattro is copy righted????)
