An education start-up company that sued Harvard University to protect its right to use the name notHarvard.com is changing its name to Powered.com.

NotHarvard.com filed a lawsuit against Harvard in July. The company sought a judgment from the court that protected its name under trademark law. The university countersued, asking a court to stop notHarvard.com from using the school's trademark in its domain name.

Powered.com has asked the court to dismiss both suits and has offered to transfer the notHarvard.com domain name to the school.

Details: www.powered.com and www.harvard.edu
