I'm pretty sure that the RB team could prove precedence through first usage
(all it'd take is a quick few Internet Archive searches and a choice few
Google searches to cull relevant statistical information as to when the name
'Rockbox' was first used)...
 
... I like Rockblox better than Tetrox too, it's way catchier. :D

Oh well, I preferred the name Rockblox anyway :)
It is a worry though, these increasing claims - how long will it be before
one of the many users of the word "Rockbox" (or similar) come after us - or
do we have some kind of immunity on that one?
