I had a friend who worked for Telex back in day; she lost her job when 
Telex girded itself for the legal dustup against IBM.  (Telex sued IBM 
for anti-competitive practices; IBM countersued for copyright 
infringement.)  This was back in the day that it seemed that everyone 
was suing IBM.

Telex was acquired by Memorex back in the 80s.
