Porn Company To Sue HTC Over Phone Name?

When I first heard of HTC's Vivid smartphone, I immediately confused it with a porno. Thankfully, the porn company Vivid Entertainment has sent HTC a cease and desist letter to prevent this from ever happening again! roll eyes (sarcastic)

Vivid reportedly claims that the new 4.5-inch smartphone will lead to brand confusion; we'd imagine the company is worried people will think Vivid the company is somehow connected to Vivid the phone. Vivid did just launch a Google TV channel, so it's possible it's thinking of reaching even further with some sort of co-branded phone of its own.
