Apple asks FaceSpan to abandon product name change
In a letter to company officials, Apple's Counsel has asked FaceSpan's developer to stop using the names Visual AppleScript, Visual AppleScripter, the www.visualapplescript.com domain and the tagline "It's Visual AppleScript," which it currently uses on shipping products of FaceSpan.
Apple has to protect their trademarks or they'll lose them. I also wonder if Apple was considering calling AppleScript Studio "Visual AppleScript" since AppleScript Studio has such an unfortunate acronym. :-)
