...and sometimes it doesn't do any good at all. IIRC, Victor (of the
Victor 9000) sued someone who'd been doing business as Victor

As far as Mohawk, it's an interesting and very tangled story as near
as I can determine. In 1986, Momentum Technologies purchased the
Herkimer (NY) division of Mohawk and merged with Onset Corporation in
1988. Somehow, Onset became the property of DecisionOne. (aka
Decision Data Corp)

operation in Hayward became Qantel and is still in business (although
I suspect that there's at least a chapter 11 in there somewhere).
I recall in the 70's, a couple of CDC co-workers going to work for
the Los Gatos operation of Mohawk, but I never learned what they did
