Jedi Mind changes name after suit by Lucasfilm

George Lucas is very serious about protecting his copyrights and trademarks when it comes to his epic Star Wars universe. He protects those trademarks with the verve of a Sith overlord at times suing willy-nilly for all manner of things.

I mentioned a few weeks back that Lucasfilm has filed a suit for trademark infringement against a company operating as Jedi Mind. This is the company that was peddling software claiming to let you control things using the power of your thoughts.

Jedi Mind has announced that it is changing its name to Mind Technologies, Inc. to avoid being blown into oblivion by the Death Star Lucasfilm. Jedi mind says that it has stopped the use of the Jedi name and filed for a name change with FINRA and that a new symbol will be issued.
