    Even though Touchpad SkyDrive isn't a Microsoft product, you're kinda using their trademarked name in the name of your app. Same for SugarSync. If you don't have written, notarized permission from those companies to be using your trademarks, well, you'd better get it soon. Just because the apps got into the App Catalog, it doesn't mean use of the trademark itself is legal.

    There's a reason why third-party apps aren't called "iPhone Dropbox" or "Samsung Galaxy SIII Pandora" (as silly as that last one sounds)...those apps eventually get a cease and desist--and a court date with a large dollar amount for damages attached for the app itself and every single copy sold if they don't comply with a name change or pull the app for good--once lawyers do their twice-a-year trawl through Google and Bing looking for apps named specifically like this.

    Microsoft is a great example of company that's insanely thorough about protecting its intellectual property. Trawl Lexis-Nexis sometime and you'll see they don't mess around with unauthorized use of their trademarks at all.

    As I've said to many a webOS developer that's tried to use another company's name or another company's service name as part of their application name without explicit permission, you should really be passing your proposed app names by lawyers who have far more experience than you to get legal OK before releasing them. Sometimes they'll check with the company's legal department for OK, check trademark databases, etc...

    It's just not worth making 70% per copy of a $1.29 app on a webOS app when you stand to lose far more without that peace of mind. Hope this helps.
