John McAfee Can Finally Use His Own Name Again

An anonymous reader quotes Fossbytes:
It was last year when, John McAfee, the co-founder of an antivirus company that’s now owned by Intel, took Intel to the court over the right to use his name for commercial purposes… According to a Reuters report, the US District Judge Paul Oetken has dismissed the 2016 case and the counter lawsuit filed by Intel. The two parties have settled upon a mutual agreement which allows John Mcafee to use his name for promotions, presentations, and advertisements. He can’t link his name to any product or service related to cyber security and security.

McAfee told the BBC that he can’t directly name a company after himself, adding “I can live with that. That certainly beats having to live with ‘The Entrepreneur Formerly known as McAfee.'”
Johnny Depp is still scheduled to play McAfee in a movie called “King of the Jungle,” which will focus on the period of his life when McAfee fled a police investigation in Belize.
