Don’t rip off the Bearglecorn or Statton Hammock will send you a cease & desist.
Perhaps fed up with people trying to rip off its Bearglecorn (you know you’re out there!), Name.com parent company Rightside has filed a trademark application covering the beast.
Wait–I’m sorry? You aren’t familiar with the bearglecorn!?!
Perhaps that’s because you’ve never landed on a Name.com 404 page.
The Bearglecorn is Name.com‘s mascot. It’s a mix of bear, eagle, and unicorn.
It was created many years ago, but apparently its likeness wasn’t used to shamelessly sell domain names until 2013. That’s the first use in commerce date on the trademark application.
The USPTO hasn’t published the trademark application for opposition yet, but I expect a flood of opposition when it does. I’ve heard GoDaddy has been working on a Corbeagle.
