SkyDrive Renamed OneDrive

A good change is on the way says Microsoft in a mail to Hotmail, Outlook and Exchange users.

In the coming weeks you’ll notice a change happening. SkyDrive will become OneDrive, an even better place to store and share your favourite things across all of your favourite devices. But don’t worry, during this transition you’ll still be able to access all of your photos, videos, documents and files.

OneDrive. It’s everything you love about SkyDrive and more.

And it’s coming soon.

The name change came about due to a trademark infringement case filed by British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB). The BSkyB complaint stems from the usual branding of services from BSkyB — that is, naming services with the word Sky, such as Sky Broadband or Sky Go, a digital streaming service.

Microsoft might run into another infringement battle with the likes of Ubuntu One (cloud service) and One.com (Hosting company).
