Babya forms Babya international

August 28, 2008

Babya today announced a strategic new company organization under the name of Babya  Software International. 

The Babya subsidiaries are:

 

  • Babya
  • Baby A Software Development
  • Babya Service
  • Babya Retail and Distribution
  • Babya Australia
  • Babya Europe
  • Babya Asia
  • Babya USA
  • Babya Retail and Distribution and Baby A Software development are new subsidiaries that focus on software distribution and development (the latter).

    Babya Asia/Australia/Europe/USA is  company subsidiaries using the Babya coporate name. 

    To reflect the new structure better, a company wide logo that replaces the current silver “babya” logo has been introduced:using Arial as the font, the ya part is in italics and in blue, while “bab” is in the signature Babya gray and the letters are closely spaced

    Babya’s A.A. Fussy commented on the new logo as being striking and in two tone:gray represents Babya’s famous choice of user interface color, while black is a instant classic. 

    “Having all our companies under the same umbrella is something we’ve been planning for the past 4 years or so, and now we’ve done it-welcome to the new Babya.”

    The new Babya identity will be part of a web advertizing campagin  to start soon, with the tagline,

    “It’s Babya but not as you’ve ever seen it”

    Babya based where-the answer from A.A. Fussy

    August 28, 2008

    I always think of where is  Babya based?-the answer is:

    it’s always hosted in the United States and other countries

    Then in 2006, a QLD business stopped using our name-a misspelt version: the fair trading department ruled that it has never been registered as a business name-even though it’s usually not allowed to have a business name unregistered, so here’s the full answer from them:

     
    I refer to your email complaint of 15 September 2006 regarding Ted Grimsey using a mis-spelt version of the Babya name.
     Additionally I have been advised by Ted he has never formally registered the name as a trading name or trademark.

    So I hope that clears up any confusion

     

    On the other hand, there are a lot of “Baby A” businesses: we’ve contacted a lot of them and don’t seem to change their registered company names, as it’s time-consuming.

    Babya and other companies using our product names-a extensive list

    August 26, 2008

    Babya and other companies using our product names-here’s a extensive list:

     

    Using our product names after we stopped using them ourselves:

    • OneVideo Technology kindly asked us to rename our iPod video conversion software, we chose to start “BabyaOne” and drop Babya OneVideo altogether
    • Broadcaster-formerly IMSI used iGrab as a one of it’s services name-unrelated to ours
    • Blurb’s successfull book publishing product Booksmart-was the name of a library management app:yes we decided it’s best to stop dev on a new version indefintely

    Names changed due requests by us:

    • Babya A soft drinks, in Queensland
    • bPlayer-name of a company’s product that we didn’t give permission to use our bplayer name in 2002, later Gerzonic using the name  for a audio plugin to this day (we appreciate that fact). Eventually we chose bTunes as its successor

    Names used by other companies but haven’t ask us to rename ours:

    • YouTube desktop:Google didn’t ask us to rename this product
    • Logic & Mobile Me-Apple does not notice our freeware products
    • iTunes and bTunes-sounds confusing but again, Apple hasn’t prevented us from using bTunes
    Completely unreleated to our business
    • companies calling themselves or mentioning  Babya:IMVU,LBMS,Baby Alpaca to name a few
    • Jaguar (owned by Tata Motors)-E-Type their famous car, our free word processor
    • Baby Acapulco  restaurant
    • Artist Zaza Babya
    • Baby A-yes, that’s a company based in Californa  the one currently using babya.com
    • Tuja Babya-a video by a group of people from Uganda,  Africa, we love that video so much:we gave them free use of our name,and no confusion ever so what since then.
    • Chiaa Babya
    • Wawa Babya-Arabic language video

    Babya and Apple Legal

    August 26, 2008

    Seems Apple Legal hasn’t ask sites to have new nano photos  removed, but a app store game:

    http://twofingerplay.blogspot.com/2008/08/over-for-now.html

    On the other hand Apple continues to not notice Babya Logic and Mobile Me-here’s the track  record:

    -released Logic 1.x, no cease and desist letter ever received

    -released version 2, again no C&D

    -released version 3 and 4-no notice from them at all.

    -released Mobile Me-as above, no C&D

    All because I don’t charge $399 and $99-if I did, then the story would be very different.
