We will be continuing to use this branding, and will be using it on several web sites.
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 the Polyvinci branding, and can prove first use, as indicated by our October 15, 2018 domain name (.Com) registration.
We should own it. 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.

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).

02. It cleared a Trademark search on the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) database.

03. There was no fictitious name or business named using our word in the Florida SunBiz database.

04. There was no usage of our word on ANY social media.

It 100% cleared.

If 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.

Since then, and this is a very interesting coincidence, our word has been showing up.
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.
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.

Publication notes
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”.
