Microsoft renaming cloud storage

A court challenge by BSkyB has forced Microsoft to rename its cloud storage service
A court challenge by BSkyB has forced Microsoft to rename its cloud storage service

Microsoft is renaming its cloud storage service OneDrive after BSkyB took issue with its former name, SkyDrive.

The two sides settled the dispute last July for undisclosed financial terms after the British broadcasting group won an initial case in a UK court.

Microsoft said the change would be made soon but did not give a date.

While the rebranding does not involve a change to the service's logo - two blue clouds on a white background - it does bring the name more in line with other company brands.

Last July, Microsoft reorganised its corporate structure to focus on providing devices and services in a strategy it called One Microsoft.

Its latest game console, released in November, is called Xbox One.
