MarkMonitor itself tipped me off to this new brand.
Last Friday I asked “Who is Clarivate?”
Some company registered a bunch of domain names through MarkMonitor for this brand.
One thought that didn’t cross my mind was that MarkMonitor was registering the domain names for itself.
As it turns out, Clarivate Analytics is the new name for Thomson Reuters’ former Intellectual Property and Science Business, which it sold to private equity firms Onex and Baring Asia.
On Friday I pointed out Onex being included in a couple of the domain names, so perhaps I should have connected the dots a bit more.
The company has continued to register domain names for the business including many ccTLDs and typos such as Clarevate.com, Clairivate.com and Claryvate.com.
