Comodo stands down from trademark tussle with Let's Encrypt

Looks like Comodo has had second thoughts about entering a trademark dispute over the term "Let's Encrypt", as Steve Ragan at CSO Online reports:

A Comodo staffer, Robin Alden, said that the company had abandoned their let's encrypt trademarks.

"Comodo has filed for express abandonment of the trademark applications at this time instead of waiting and allowing them to lapse. Following collaboration between Let's Encrypt and Comodo, the trademark issue is now resolved and behind us and we'd like to thank the Let's Encrypt team for helping to bring it to a resolution."

It's good to see common sense winning through.

    I doubt it's "common sense winning through"; more like the legal action which they'd probably have lost and have been ordered to pay substantial damages and costs not to mention their reputational damage.
