Microsoft will be changing the name of “Skydrive” to “Onedrive”



Microsoft, the company behind the skydrive will be changing the name of the skydrive to onedrive after a British court ruled that Microsoft’s use of the SkyDrive name was infringing on a trademark owned by British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB) Group’s Sky trademark. Microsoft decided to change the name to onedrive instead of fighting in court. Microsoft has also launched a website onedrive.com which states “Get ready for an even better place to store and share your favorite things across all your favorite devices.OneDrive is everything you love about SkyDrive and more. And it’s coming soon.

This isn’t the first time for Microsoft to change one of its brands because of a naming dispute. Back in 2012 Microsoft dropped the word Metro for it’s windows 8 interface.
