No 'shock and awe' for Sony
Wednesday, April 16, 2003 Posted: 12:41 AM EDT (0441 GMT)

TOKYO, Japan (Reuters) -- Responding to criticism that it was trying to 
take advantage of the Iraq war for commercial gain, Sony Corp said on 
Wednesday it will not use the phrase "shock and awe" for PlayStation 
videogames made by a subsidiary.

A U.S. unit of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc has withdrawn an 
application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to register the 
phrase for commercial use, a Sony spokeswoman said.

The application had been made last month shortly after U.S.-led forces 
began an attack on Iraq with a strategy of heavy aerial bombardment 
termed "shock and awe."

"We have withdrawn the application which was made on March 21," the Sony 
spokeswoman said.

While there had been no specific plans to use the phrase for a title of 
PlayStation software, the electronic giant now felt the application was 
inappropriate, she said.
