Samsung hasn’t really gained a lot of fame for its media alternatives. Just recently we learned that its ChatOn messaging service might cease to exist in the next coming months, and we also saw how its Media Hub service simply disappeared. Samsung has decided to re-invent some of these services with its new Milk Music and Milk Video services, but it seems even those won’t be free from trouble.
Milk Studios is currently suing Samsung over the name “Milk” being used for media offerings, and given the fact that Milk Studios is a photography and media company, the lawsuit makes sense after the recent launch of Samsung’s Milk Video. Milk Studios has formally requested that Samsung change the name of its media services for the last couple of months, but we know Samsung doesn’t like to go out without a fight.
It’s hard to predict what this will mean for Samsung on the long run, but are we the only ones that find the name “Milk” to be a ridiculous way to name your media offerings? If anything, we believe this lawsuit will do Samsung a favor, but of course, we could be wrong.
