Samsung, local food company wrangle over Internet domain name
Samsung Electronics, South Korea's best-known company and one of the world's leading manufacturers of mobile phones, is embroiled in a court battle with a local food supply chain over an Internet domain name, reports the AFP.
"The small-time chain, whose identity was withheld from the public, has filed a lawsuit appealing against an earlier decision that the company should hand over the domain name -- "sens.co.kr" -- to Samsung, according to Moneytoday, an Internet news provider.
Samsung in May 1996 registered "SENS" as a trademark for its computers and monitors."
