On July 26, I performed Google searches for the following and scanned the
first 100-400 results or so for each.

I found a number of software projects, project components, and companies
either named "Lucy" or incorporating the name "Lucy".



Lucy Software GMBH

This German software company, which has offices throughout Europe, specializes
in Machine Translation and SAP Translation.

Lucy Host
bq. Lucy Host (TM) offers powerful and affordable web hosting solutions for web sites.

Products named "Lucy"

Lucy Gateway, a.k.a. LUCY

Whether you're a merchant, reseller or product developer, you can expand your business with
fully integrated payment services  from LUCY Gateway. We provide you with the tools needed
to process all payment types, including credit cards (bank, non-bank, procurement level III)
with signature capture, pin-based debit, checks, EBT services and gift cards.

Whether you're updating your current payment acceptance system, taking your business online
or expanding to multiple locations, LUCY™ will grow your business simply and securely. 

In the trademark section above, I marked Cynergy Data's "LUCY" as "clearly not
search related", but they do seem to be quite successful.

Epic Lucy P.H.R, a.k.a. Lucy
bq. Lucy is a PHR that is not connected to any facility's electronic medical record system.
It stays with patients wherever they receive care and allows them to organize their medical
information in one place that is readily accessible. Patients can enter health data directly
into Lucy, pull in MyChart data or upload standards-compliant Continuity of Care Documents
from other facilities.

Epic's Lucy is trademarked and was tagged as worthy of further investigation, above.

Lucy DNA sequence quality and vector trimming tool
bq. Lucy was designed and written at The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR, now the J.
Craig Venter Institute), and it has been used here for several years to clean sequence data
from automated DNA sequencers prior to sequence assembly and other downstream uses.  The quality
trimming portion of lucy makes use of phred quality scores, such as those produced by many
automated sequencers based on the Sanger sequencing method.

bq. Lucy2 is a raw DNA sequence trimming and visualization tool based on the command-line
tool Lucy1.

Lucy, a subcomponent of the T2 Framework
bq. On the other hand, Lucy is a simple and light weight IoC container with AOP. It is not
like Spring, but Lucy has almost all features that Spring has as IoC container. 

LUCY: A FORTRAN implementation of semiclassical spectral quantization (redirects to
bq. The basic formalism of Semiclassical Spectral Quantization (SQ) is reviewed here. Some
analytic formulae necessary for its implementation are also presented. All facets of LUCY,
a FORTRAN implementation of SQ, are described in detail.

LUCY: A 3-D Pelvic Model for Surgical Simulation (redirects to
bq. Development of 3-D models of human anatomy for use in virtual reality simulators is anticipated
to enhance surgical training....

Everquest database of spells?

bq. Lucy - Newsreader for the console

bq. Lucy Raster to Vector Conversion Software

Zajtra's Lucy is the "data conversion software" trademarked above.  Zajtra
Incorporated appears to be defunct, and the archive at is the
only place I have been able to find information about them.

Project Lucy
bq. A HL2 Mod

Project Lucy has only 4 updates, all on May 4, 2010.

bq. Lucy is a C# based tool for converting DigiTech XML preset files. Currently, the only
supported conversion is Gnx4 Workstation files (.g4p) to RP-250 files. (.rp250) 

ptlucy has had only one bulk upload, in 2007.


Products formerly named "Lucy"

Zettair Search Engine Library
bq. As of August 2004, the Lucy search engine has been renamed to the Zettair search engine.

bq. Zettair is a compact and fast text search engine designed and written by the Search Engine
Group at RMIT University. 

This product clearly is "similar" to our Lucy, as both are open source search
engine libraries written in C.  Whether a conflict exists would seem to hinge
upon whether the name "Lucy" is still considered to be in use by Zettair.


Ghost trademarks for "Lucy"

Mehl, Griffin & Bartek's abandoned "Lucy" trademark application was marked as
worthy of more investigation above.  I cannot find any trace of an actual
product on the 'net.


Products incorporating the name "Lucy"

Lucy Viewer
bq. Lucy Viewer is an interactive viewing software for 4D models, i.e, dynamic three-dimensional
scenes that evolve over time. Each 4D model is a sequence of meshes with associated texture
information, in terms of images captured from multiple cameras at each frame. Such data is
available from the 4D repository website hosted by INRIA Grenoble. 

Trans Lucy
bq. What's on the TV? Plug it in to your Mac and find out. Or toss in a DVD or even play a
movie file. Keep right on working though because you have Trans Lucy 2, the video player that
lets you work and watch at the same time. 

Lucy Search
bq. UI for Apache lucene. 

The short lived "Lucy Search", which was started on November 23, 2009 and
received its 12th and final update on December 6, 2009, appears to be

Lucy's Search for Health and Wholeness
This is a blog about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and does not conflict despite
the URL.

Acapela Lucy British English Female 22khz TTS Voice
bq. Voice add-on for the popular TextAloud Text To Speech program.

This is a font, and does not conflict.


Conclusion: there are a lot of software products incorporating the name Lucy.
Guidance will have to be sought from legal as to whether conflicts exist.
