I assume that any registered owners of the above will receive the same email as 
I have. However the following extract of this email may be of interest.

First of all thank you very much for supporting apulSoft by buying an apEQ 
license. Unfortunately I have some bad news. As you might know apulSoft is a 
one-man company. I recently have been contacted by a hardware manufacturer and 
been informed that they own the trademark "APEQ" and use it for some standalone 
hardware equalizer. They want me to stop using the word "apEQ" and after 
careful consideration I unfortunately had to decide I cannot fight them. 
Although I technically was selling apEQ a few months before they registered 
"APEQ" as their trademark (and failed to use google in the process..), fighting 
against them is just something I cannot do as I'm just one guy and apEQ is not 
exactly making me rich at all, so I can't justify to hire a lawyer for the 
matter. And as the product release dates are pretty close, it is unclear who 
really owns the trademark. Unfortunately the hardware company has refused to 
try to work out a solution together that would benefit everybody leaving me no 
choice as to stop selling apEQ as of right now.

In order not to loose the plugin completely I decided to rename and relaunch it 
and from now on it is going to be called "apulSoft apQualizr".
