Madhi19 Reddit new post madhi19 on TIL that George Lucas trademarked the word "Droid" and Motorola had to pay him for every phone sold under this moniker.

I figure Motorola paid an exclusive license for Smartphone and maybe Tablet. Their reasoning was that it would be cheaper to buy the license than fight to invalidate in court. Even if they won they would have got nothing, because once the trademark is invalid everybody can use it.
