HTC Vivid Entertainment

See, folks, you've gotta be careful when you're naming things, otherwise you might find yourself on the wrong end of porn. Wait. Back that thang up. Erm, we mean let's back up. Uhhh, start at the begnning.

Adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment -- perhaps you know their work -- apparently has sent a cease-and-desist letter to HTC, claiming that the new HTC Vivid -- one of AT&T's first LTE Android smartphones -- is infringing on its trademarked name. The Verge confirmed the letter with HTC and rightfully notes that this could be Vivid Entertainment vigorously defending its trademarks (and of there's one way Vivid knows how to work, it's vigorously), as you're required to do in such cases.

But also remember that Vivid has already announced its own Google TV channel, so the lines are being blurred a little bit. That doesn't mean you're likely to see a dedicated porn phone anytime soon, though you'll recall how someone already thought there was one. And this isn't the first naming spat HTC's seen -- the HTC ChaCha's been targeted by an online search engine of the same name, and it was changed to the ChaChaCha in Spain because of translation issues.
