TeraByte Unlimited, Inc. reached an agreement with Microsoft over the use of the word "Bing." Microsoft's search engine shares a name with TeraByte's BootIt Next Generation (BING) software.
The two companies resolved their dispute by entering into a trademark consent and coexistence agreement. Under the agreement, each company would be able to use "Bing" in its own field.
