However, if SlyFy had registered "Pusher" as a copyrighted product name, they could probably sue. But that registration is a pain in the ass so maybe Greg didn't do it or thinks people can figure out the difference between the two so it's not a big deal.
Honestly, I think it's classless. I also don't think songs is a good analogy, there are millions of them, and I can write and register one in 15 minutes for $30-.

A software emulation can take years and a lot of money. Copyrighting is also a big deal to a small company, time consuming and expensive. Personally if I was releasing a product, I'd steer clear of others names out of respect, but hey that's just me.....
