We have reached an agreement with Hendrickson Software Components, the company that has registered[*1] the name "SpamX" as a trademark:
We are going to change the display name of the plugin to Spam-X (with the hyphen) but keep the internal name as it is (so as not to break compatibility and complicate updates). We've also taken a few measures to keep the plugin's search engine ranking low so as not to confuse prospective buyers looking for the other SpamX product.
There will be an update of Geeklog's Spam-X plugin in the near future, that will - in addition to the cosmetic name change - also include new and updated modules for more effective blocking of comment spam.
