Lucasfilm Owns All of Your Droids
Geege Schuman stashed this in Bots
Fun Fact: Today, there’s another twist to Lucasfilm’s trademark of “Droid”: In 2012, Disney purchased Lucasfilm. The Steven P. Jobs Trust is Disney’s largest shareholder, with a 7.7% stock. Since Lucasfilm (now Disney) owns the rights to the word “Droid”, Steve Jobs is posthumously profiting from the sale of every Motorola Droid phone -- one of the Apple iPhone’s biggest competitors.
