Yes, it depends on the company and if there is an underpaid lawyer
around (no offense meant, atilla).

A friend owning 'mobilix.de', dealing with Linux on mobile devices was
sued by the company which has the right son the famous "Asterix"
comics, where the second main character is named "Obelix". He lost the
case all the way up to the highest court although comics have nothing
in common with serious computer work (oh, ok, except UserFriendly)..
