Company acquires CrowdSignal.com and applies for trademarks.
Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, is getting ready to launch an online polling/survey platform.
The company recently acquired The CrowdSignal.com domain name and has registered many variants of domains with “CrowdSignal” in them. CrowdSignal.com currently resolves to a WordPress site that is protected.
At the end of September, Automattic applied for two intent-to-use trademarks for ‘CrowdSignal’. The Goods and services are listed as:
Application service provider (ASP) featuring software in the field of online voting, surveys, polls, quizzes, questionnaires, assessments, and ratings for use with websites, blogs, email and social media.
It will be interesting to see if CrowdSignal is primarily a tool for use with WordPress or if it’s a standalone survey and polling solution.
The CrowdSignal.com domain name was listed on domain sales platform Undeveloped.com with a $25,000 asking price prior to its transfer to Automattic.
