in OOo 3.4 "Datapilot" was renamed to "Pivot Table". This change was
merged to LibO and is now in localization.
While we discussed if we will change the name in GErman translations,
Stefan Weigel found something interesting:
Von: Stefan Weigel<firstname.lastname@example.org>
Es gibt übrigens eine Patentschrift United States Patent Nr.
US6,411,313 B1, in der das User-Interface der microsoftschen
Pivot-Tabelle als Erfindung geschützt wird. In dieser Schrift heißt
es unter anderem wörtlich: "PivotTable is a trademark of Microsoft
http://ip.com/patent/US6411313 (Seite 10, 2. Absatz)
Short translation is that there is a patent claim which references to
PivotTable as trademark of Microsoft Corporation. Within the last
years this was always named as reason why OOo needs to use the term
"Datapilot" - I have no idea if (and how) this situation did change
recently. In fact there might be an agreement between Oracle and MS
which covers OOo .. but surely not LibO.
Any ideas on this?
Woah.... seems we live in a mad, mad world...
In Brazil it is known as "dynamic table". I wonder one here can
trademark such common words.
well, the word "bohneur" in French is owned by Nestlé :p
For the FR community we decided to no change it to the MS terminology
and keep the OOo one.
Besides, a quick reading of the link above seems to deal more on the
pivot table user interface than on the name...
