According to the new Pidgin.im website, the multi-protocol IM program’s new official website, AOL was threatening lawsuits against them if they continued to use the name Gaim.

Gaim is now known as Pidgin. It's new website is Pidgin.im :

"After a long, and unfortunately secret debate (as we could not say why we were looking at a name change, we ended up just doing this ourselves), we settled on the name "Pidgin" for gaim itself, "libpurple" for libgaim (which, as of 2.0.0 beta6, exists), and "Finch" for gaim-text. Yes, the spelling of "Pidgin" is intentional, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidgin."
