Copyright infringement with one of your plugins. (3 posts)

    One of your plugins is an infringement on our copyright. Socialcast is a copyrighted term that is not to be used without our approval. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/socialcast/

    I have reached out to the team that developed the plugin but I need it to be removed until they have changed the name. You can view the terms that are legally copyrighted by us at the bottom of our webpage. http://www.socialcast.com/product

    Thanks!

    Flagged for investigation.

  3. Sorry about that. We're not lawyers and assume people have actually checked on a name first. This is clearly trademarked, and since they're both social network type tools, it's too close to even argue. I've closed the plugin and told the dev to contact you guys directly to negotiate if he wants to try.

    FWIW, registered trademarks are not case sensitive. :)
