California based Cisco Systems is suing Steve Jobs and company for trademark infringement, claiming they’ve owned the name iPhone since 2000. Who knew Cisco had an iPhone? CNBC’s Jim Goldman did, he first reported it weeks ago, and on today's “Squawk on the Street” he revealed more about the potential fist fight brewing in the Bay area.
"This is really a stunning turn of events for one of the best known names in technology," said Goldman. "Cisco has owned the name for the past 7 years and has attached it to a series of internet phones and other devices."
Who knew Cisco had an iPhone? On CNBC’s “Fast Money" Wednesday night, Dylan Ratigan first articulated what everyone on Wall Street is saying today, “You’d think they would have this worked out ahead of time.”
