EMC strikes back at HP

Wins injunction in US court

US wires reported Friday that storage company EMC took out an injunction against Hewlett Packard. According to the reports, EMC's injunction prevents HP using the letter MC to describe any of their storage products. Earlier this year, HP provoked a rift with EMC when it decided to stop re-selling the latter's products in favour of systems from Hitachi Data Systems. At the time, HP senior executives said that EMC products were "old" and "proprietary", compared to their own and Hitachi's products. ® See also EMC and HP: war declared HP, EMC get into store-rage (geddit?!?)
