I found the news item mentioned in today's comic to be fascinating. Can a company really sue over the word sky? Yes. Yes they can.
Sky has already sued Microsoft into changing the name SkyDrive into OneDrive. How do I know this? Because every single news outlet has apparently copied and pasted developer Sean Murray's tweets on the subject and called it a day. I couldn't find a single additional detail on the lawsuit. I guess that's how settlements work.
I'll hold my breath for more details. In the meantime, I'm eagerly anticipating playing No Man's Sky as soon as it's available. Kudos to Hello Games for turning a negative into a positive.
