Lawyers have told the Electronic Frontier Foundation that, for the second time in a month, their legal claims were sent in error.
Lawyers representing British fashion company ASOS sent a email to an EFF attorney, apologizing for the recent cease-and-desist letter over a claimed trademark infringement.

ASOS assures that they will not be taking any further action and will provide appropriate correspondence as soon as possible to confirm this.The spat stems from a domain name – -which was purchased as a way to poke fun at a President Donald Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, when he tweeted with the accidental URL.

ASOS told the California Web developer who bought the domain name that it violated its trademark of their clothing known as “COLLUSION.” EFF told the company it did not violate the trademark, which lead to the reversal.
