The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Boston, seeks unspecified damages and asks Time and CNet to change the name of Fortune/Cnet Technology Review and its companion Web site. Published since 1899, MIT's Technology Review is a monthly journal on technology with an international circulation of 300,000. MIT's alumni association has owned the rights to the name since 1958.
