The purpose for such a defense should be obvious as they could use that right to sue any company using the netbook term, which could include any company selling such a product, of which there are many. Psion has already sent cease and desist letters to many manufacturers of the small devices. Dell is one of those companies, and they have filed a petition to cancel the filing, claiming that Psion is not only trying to abuse a generic name, but is attempting fraud. The latter portion comes from the fact that Psion doesn't appear to be even selling netbooks or using the name in the public at all.
