Microsoft holds the trademark to "*Windows* Media Player" not "Media Player," which is a generic term. People tend to overreact when it comes to lawsuits. Calm, logical thinking should prevail. See the aforementioned.

They don't hold the trademark on MikeRowSoft.com either, but that does
not prevent its lawyer army to harass an adolescent.

There is already a project at SourceForge called "MediaPlayer Classic" which is a clone of the media player that came with Windows 98. If Microsoft hasn't harassed its maintainers, for it is a rather popular program, I doubt they would care about something from the tiny GNUstep world.
