I am thinking of a name to give to a distinct format of file. It is a JSON or XML file that store the location of things found on the internet, much like an address (as the format) that point a specific location.
Something like (clip, clippings, clipp, clippr, clipps, clips, clipr, clippers).
This name will be given to the file type and the app/software that reads it.
<filename>.clipp.json with android app Clipp.
Note: Clipp has been used to name an app that helps you book a restaurant. See: clipp.co
Some of these names have been taken by one brand (like clipp, clippr and clipps). Some are taken by multiple brands sharing the same name (like clips and clipper). Some are just general names used by many other apps and brands as well (like clip and clippings).
As much as copyright and trademarks are concerned (as discussed in: Brand piracy).
- Is it legal to have same software/app name?
- .. with different logo?
- .. have different target market (while one app is a browser, the other is a note manager)
- .. with a brand that uses common verb or noun like (tyre,clipper,move,bags)
