T-Mobile has some balls and I can’t believe that a company can own the rights to a color, let alone Magenta. That’s just ridiculous. Seems like the people in the Netherlands aren’t happy about this. Can anyone confirm if you get this dialog message when selecting pure magenta in CS3? I have a hard time believe that you do.

The fight has begun recently, when mobile carrier T-Mobile has started a legal fight versus a series of Dutch brands such as Slam FM, Compello and 100% NL which magenta in their logo.
