    Samsung's continued knee-jerk reaction to anything that Apple does never ceases to amuse.

    Samsung also owns the trademarked name:

    Thanks.  In which case I think saying Mapzen is "backed by" Samsung is a bit of a weird way to put it.  Mapzen is a division of Samsung, they're in that Venn diagram.  I don't think it makes much sense to say that you back something that you own.

    That is because they plan to rebrand the company as Sam-zen-g at some point!
