Steem’s new fork Hive is accused of plagiarism by a mining firm
“HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd., a Canadian publicly listed mining firm based in Vancouver, published a notice Monday saying it has sent a cease-and-desist letter from its legal representatives to Hive.io, saying the new blockchain is tapping into its investment in building "goodwill" in the industry.” According to CoinDesk.

Will the blockchain be renamed or what actions will the witness take, that would be interesting to know. Hope all is well
