Sony Ericsson has filed a lawsuit against Clearwire, alleging that Clearwire's logo too closely resembles its own. In a legal document filed with the court, Sony Ericsson said, "Clearwire's use of infringing sphere with swirl logos ... are confusingly similar to Sony Ericsson's federally registered sphere with swirl marks, in connection with mobile broadband products and services." Sony Ericsson also takes issue with the green and white color scheme of Clearwire's logo, which is also similar to Sony Ericsson's colors. Sony Ericsson is hoping to prevent Clearwire from using the logo, and is also asking for monetary damages.
