Xoom Sues Motorola Over New Tablet Computer With Same Name

Xoom Corp., operator of a money- transfer website, sued Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. for trademark infringement for naming its new tablet computer that went on sale today the Xoom.

Xoom Corp., based in San Francisco, said it has been offering its online service since 2003 and registered the trademark for the name in 2004, according to a complaint filed yesterday in federal court in San Francisco.

"To confuse and mislead consumers, Motorola without authorization deliberately and unlawfully appropriated Xoom's trade name and trademark rights," the closely held company said in the complaint.
