Chicago Journal is a digital media house bringing to the world the latest stories of the City of Chicago. The Company recently posted about an interesting and ‘kindly’ existence of a similar Journal.
Chicago Journal was getting numerous queries regarding the existence of another digital platform TheChicagoJournal.com. Chicago journal, which operates on the domain name ChicagoJournal.com, has announced that it has NO CONNECTION with this domain name.
Chicago Journal in its post also presented details about The Chicago Journal. The company is a part of a collaboration called News Anchored. News Anchored was formed after the amalgamation of 24 companies. The Chicago Journal is one of the 24 companies. The domain name TheChicagoJournal.com was registered just two days after the domain NewsAnchored.com.
Chicago Journal clearly mentions that it has no trademarks over either the ‘Chicago’ mark nor on ‘Journal’ mark. Chicago Journal also stated that since they couldn’t find that The Chicago Journal was trying to benefit from its name, they didn’t take any action.
This is pleasing on several levels. Companies seldom allow such similarity to their brand. Chicago Journal did that, which shows the confidence of the people working there.
