After 8 months of waiting, OpenShot has finally been officially registered as a US Trademark! This is great news, as it protects the name and branding of OpenShot, and ensures we won't have to choose a new name at some point.
When I first announced the name "OpenShot" on this website, I was soon contacted by a company who claimed I had "lifted" their name. This began an 8 month battle to trademark the name. So, you see, this is a big moment for me, as it means the name is finally safe, and I can return my focus on the things that really matter, like the next version of OpenShot!
