NOTICE ABOUT THE “POLYVINCI” BRANDING.

will be continuing to use this branding, and will be using it on several
Anyone using this branding does so without our permission, and we are
not associated with them.
They do not own our branding, do not control it, and are marketing and
building branding that will lead back to us (do a search for Polyvinci
right now if you don’t believe us. Do it).
We control this branding. We own it.
WE OWN IT.
We own the Polyvinci branding, and can
prove first use, as indicated by our October 15, 2018 domain name (.Com)
We should own it. We created the word.
WE CREATED THE WORD.
When we did legal clearance checks in 2018, there were ZERO occurrences
of our word being used anywhere in the world.
We know. We checked. So should others.
WE DID PROPER LEGAL AND SEARCH ENGINE SEARCHES TO ESTABLISH
THAT THE BRANDING FOR OUR WORD WAS LEGALLY CLEAR. DID YOU?
01. The .Com domain name for the word was available. No other
domain name variants were taken, either, although it is our professional
opinion and our experience that the .Com domain name is the only variant
that matters (and it was still registered FIRST).
It cleared a Trademark search on the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark
There was no fictitious name or business named using our word in the Florida
There was no usage of our word on ANY social media.
we would have discovered anyone using our word, we would have respected
their intellectual property and not registered the domain name for it.
We would have found something else.
then, and this is a very interesting coincidence, our word has been showing
There have been people using it on freebie social media accounts. Someone
in Europe is using it for a business. Someone else registered it closer
to home as a business (be thankful that this is a web site publication
and we aren’t using it as business branding, or it would have caused
a strong legal response).
We do not see any way that anyone could have missed the fact that we established
it in 2018 and that we own it, especially with recent search engine results
for our branding word.
We certainly hope that no one saw our word, disrespected our ownership
of it, and decided to use it, regardless.
We have had experience with these issues before, they played out a certain
way, and it will happen, again.
DJ Frontier was a DJ name created by C. A. Passinault, the owner of this
site, back on February 25, 1993, and was registered as a .Com domain name
back on July 23, 2006.
Since that time, several people started registering it and using it on
freebie social media accounts. They were fully aware that we owned the
domain name and the branding. They were brazen and rude about it, at first,
but when they realized that they were building and marketing branding
that they did not own, that they could not control, and that they could
not make us give up because we were already using it and could prove first
use, they gave up.
Anyone using our branding DOES NOT CONTROL THE BRANDING, DOES
NOT OWN IT, and is MARKETING BRANDING THAT SOMEONE ELSE OWNS.
The fact that we did not register it as a Trademark makes no difference.
Again, we can prove first use, and no one can retroactively make us give
it up or stop using it.
Anyone doing any kind of search for this branding will find us, and there
is no way around this, especially as we own the domain name for it, and
will not give it up.
If anyone wishes to make this a legal issue, they are more than welcome
to, as we will fight for our rights. It is not our fault if people don’t
do proper checks.
Stop wasting time and energy. Trying to hijack out branding and make it
your own is futile, and will continue to be futile, diluting what you
are doing. Respect our rights and our branding. Find something else, and,
this time, do proper clearance checks.
Do the honorable thing. Be cool. Don’t be a jerk.
Welcome to Polyvinci,
an online pop culture, entertainment, video game, enthusiast, niche interest,
and current events publication and web site.
Like our predecessor before us, Frontier Pop, this web site will be published
monthly, with no limits on updates as no issue is final, and with each
issue becoming the main subject page for its main topic.
Frontier Pop will continue on, however, with a soft reboot starting with
what the current publication Volume and Issue would be, and continuing
from that point (with a legal disclaimer about the issue number not being
literal). Frontier Pop will resume publication in July 2023, before Polyvinci
begins publication. Frontier Pop will be more satire and will tackle more
fringe and controversial topics than is appropriate for this web site
publication. Frontier Pop will not be replaced by Polyvinci, but will
rather supplement this web site.
This web site is now being worked on to make it fully operational during
the Summer of 2023 in preparation for the start of publication of regular
monthly issues on this web site.
The first few monthly issues of Polyvinci will be about the main topics
that this web site covers, beginning with pop culture, as we need to establish
core subject pages, which issues become after newer issues come online.
The second issue will be about video games.
Polyvinci is published monthly, as close to the first of the month as
possible, with a lead time of at least three months to plan issues.
Each issue has a main subject, which enables the issue to be organized
by subject once newer issues take main stage.
As the publication covers a massive range of subjects and content, content
must be managed to avoid losing readers due to focusing on subjects that
do not have mass appeal. That known, each issue has to be “double”
written, with an amount of content at least twice what issue would normally
have. 50% of the content of each issue must have mainstream appeal, and
the remainder of the content being above and beyond, covering content
which is supplemental to content on the site organized under a general
subject category elsewhere on the site, or establishing new subject content
which has not necessarily been featured in any issue (yet. A future issue
covering that subject would then already have content to link to to supplement
the featured subject content of that issue). 50% of that “above
and beyond” issue content (25% of total issue content) can then
be devoted to specialized or special interest content, such as content
covering pop culture.
Because no issue is final, and remains in play, with older issues becoming
the main issue for the featured subject and guaranteed to be expanded
on over time, there will be an update index on the front page (unlike
the secretive updates on a talent resource web site) which will make referencing
recent updates intuitive, user-friendly, and easy. These updates will
also be referenced on the main issue “core” pages.
“Get to know things” is the slogan of the Polyvinci web site.
Polyvinci is an online publication consisting of opinions, op-eds, entertainment,
humor, satire, and a little bit of gaming, as well as information.
The Polyvinci Society web site, on the other hand, compliments Polyvinci
as an online library database filled with well-organized information on
subjects, a reference for Polyvinci. Although the organization itself
has the “We Have Evolved” slogan, the slogan for the actual
web site is “a Compendium of Knowledge”.
