What tickles my sense of irony was that when it started up, Victor began
harrassing small businesses that had similar names.  IIRC, under threat of
legal action, they actually forced a retailer who'd been doing business as
Victor Electronics for 20 years to change his business name.  Victor got a
fair amount of press when it started up--but didn't last long...and then it
fizzled.
