The community should not take a cavalier attitude to the use of the term ‘Bcash’. It is trademarked since 2012.

- the community should not take a cavalier attitude to the use of the term bcash it is trademarked since 2012 1000x600 - The community should not take a cavalier attitude to the use of the term ‘Bcash’. It is trademarked since 2012.

I really urge everyone to stop using the ‘bcash’ term (I know that most people in this sub don’t anyway).

But for the record:

It is the trademarked name of a Brazilian payment system. It has been trademarked since 2012 by Buscapé Company Informacao e Tecnologia LTDA.

[Bitcoin Cash](https://www.bitcoincash.org) deliberately avoids association with this term. We should discourage others from infringing on it as well.

A company has built up a payment infrastructure using this name, and they should get some respect for it.

I am not sure why some exchanges and users of legacy Bitcoin (BTC) did not get the memo yet.

    Bitstamp: “In order to avoid confusion we will call Bitcoin Cash ‘Bcash’ just like a trademarked Brazilian payment system. [You’re welcome.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNB_RjpWnsI)”

    Not only respect, man. If it’s trademarked then legal rights should be enforced too.

    I personally am partial to the name Shitclone – a catchy one word name and fully represents the essence of bcash to boot! Who’s with me?

    I would question it. Why would they rename the original Bitcoin which has always been Bitcoin to another name? Bcash was a fork off of the original name and should not have a blended name that only serves to confuse people which many believe is the reason it is integral to keep the real Bitcoin name in the alternate Bcash coin. It can’t stand on its own and needs to use bait and switch to lure newbies by mistake.

    We should call it BKash then. Same difference and won’t confuse people w the real Bitcoin. I know that is the goal of some. But not the honest ones. Right?

    So why exactly would I care about a trademark that does not exist in my country of residence?
