Legal Problem: Trademark Infringement of Davinci Resolve TM?

PostSat Oct 19, 2019 5:05 am

I'm sure others of noted that if you search for DAVINCI RESOLVE in Bing or DuckDuckGo, the first few hits (i) display the word DAVINCI RESOLVE, but (ii) link to nchsoftware.com/videopad and https://filmora.wondershare.net.

At the competitor websites, the download is not for Davinci Resolve, but for VideoPad and Filmora software.

On discussion forums, even in user comments on Davinci youtube tutorials, I have seen new beginners getting confused at having downloaded Filmora or VideoPad unwittingly due to this apparent mis-use of Blackmagic's trade mark.

See this site for relevant information:

Is Blackmagic corporation doing anything about this?

Do employees of BMD read this "off topic" forum, or should I re-post this in the Davinci Resolve forum where I know BMD staff read those posts.

You better send a mail to legal@ bmd. guess it will find the right channels then.

BMD employees here are moderators to keep the forum clean, and answer questions.. They might or might not pass this info along. ;)

My first two hits in DuckDuckGo were official sites, the third was Wikipedia.
