NORTH CANTON, OH--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - Squirrels LLC prides itself on providing software applications that "people go nuts for." A popular Squirrels product, Slingshot™, is an application that allows mobile device users to meet face-to-face using webcams and microphones. Squirrels has been promoting Slingshot™ since April 2013 and applied to register this trademark with the U.S. Trademark Office.
On June 17, 2014, Facebook introduced a video-sharing application designed to compete with the popular Snapchat program. Unfortunately, Facebook is calling the new application "Slingshot." The Facebook product performs some of the same functions as the Squirrels Slingshot™ application.
People now think that the Squirrels product is distributed by Facebook. The Squirrels Slingshot™ mark and logo have been posted on blogs and discussions of the new Facebook product. There is a clear confusion of the two.
"People from all over the world have been sending us messages thinking that we are the source of the new Facebook offering," Squirrels cofounder Andrew Gould said.
"Often they have questions or criticisms concerning the Facebook app," he continued. "Unfortunately, these inquiries just keep coming."
Squirrels LLC wants everyone to know that it is not associated with Facebook and has nothing to do with the Facebook app, Slingshot.
"We know Facebook is a large player in the tech industry," Gould said. "We are hoping that their use of our trademark doesn't harm the reputation of our company or Slingshot™."
Squirrels LLC is a privately held software development company based in North Canton, Ohio. Squirrels specializes in products for wireless audio and video transmission between hand-held devices and computers.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
