Robert F. Young, a founder of Linux distributor Red Hat, and owner of the Canadian football teamThe Hamilton Tiger-Cats, has offered Apple an easy way out of the lawsuit by TigerDirect over the latest version of Mac OS X 10.4 codenamed: Tiger. Mr. Young has offered to license the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' historical use of the word Tiger to Apple free of charge. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been around since 1869. '136 years ago we were called The Tigers,' Mr. Young said. 'If anyone owns the exclusive rights to the word tiger with that much history and tradition, it's gotta be us.
Message to TigerDirect: Now this is a way to get free publicity!
Message to Apple: Send Mr. Young a new iMac with an iPod Photo and end TigerDirect's authorized iPod distribution
