SupportAW Websites Shutdown
Written by
In one of the view April Fools day jokes to happen in Activeworlds this year, Maki Kato of the SupportAW websites has opted to take each of them offline claiming that he is to be sued by Activeworlds for patent infringement.

[quote=Maki]Dear Visitor:

I regretfully inform you that Activeworlds, Inc. has filed suit over trademark infringement of the name "activeworlds," U.S. Patent and Trademark Office registration #2449256.
This case requires that I suspend operation of all Support AW Organization hosted web sites until further notice. I apologize for the inconvenience.

While after the 'fun' the sites were replaced with their usual content, several eyebrows were lifted as to why Activeworlds, Inc. would sue SupportAW when it does not use the word 'Activeworlds'.
