Short Take: AltaVista respondes to lawsuit charges

Responding to the trademark infringement lawsuit filed by Digital Equipment, AltaVista Technology said it was surprised and described the charges as "unsubstantiated and completely without merit." AltaVista said it had a licensing agreement with Digital outlining the terms for the legal use of the "AltaVista" trademark by both companies. Digital filed its suit last week, saying it had bought the trademark from the company and then licensed very limited and specific uses of it back to it, as reported by Reuters.
