ImageShack Files Trademark for Twitpic

ImageShack Corporation field a trademark registration for “TWITPIC” on 24 August 2009, while Twitpic Inc., which owns, only filed for the trademark on 6 October 2009. Both companies provide a picture sharing service for users on Twitter, with ImageShack’s yFrog service competing with Twitpic.

It is very unlikely that ImageShack will get the trademark as it has never used the name “TWITPIC”, whereas Twitpic Inc. has used it since 31 January 2008.

The status of ImageShack’s request is “non-final action – mailed”, while the status of Twitpic’s request is “suspension letter – mailed”.
