We just heard back from our lawyers, and they confirmed that they sent the name and logo to The State Intelectual Property Office. We do not anticipate any trouble with registering this name as a trademark since the only mention of WhoAPI on the entire Internet is our WhoAPI. No other company registered this name in the entire world. It is only a matter of time when we post WhoAPI ® 🙂 I can’t wait for that day since this was one of my childhood dreams!
To make everything more secure, and stronger, we have also decided to increase our domain portfolio. So far we had registered whoapi.com and whoapi.us. We renewed our .com domain for another 10 years, and registered whoapi.net, whoapi.org, whoapi.info and whoapi.eu (Croatia will join the EU in 2013). We will not register any other TLD’s or ccTLD’s, neither are we interested in them.
