A few updates about VapeShop.com
Name change to VapeShop.com:
As you already know we moved to our new address at VapeShop.com.
Changing a web address is always a difficult move and a risky one as well. We loved www.worldofvape.com but we had to change our name. We were not sure if we were ever going to discuss the reasons for the move publicly - but at the end we felt our members deserved to know. So here it is:
Another company claimed that our name was somewhat similar to their's - of course we disagreed.
At first we were shocked by this issue. We could not believe it.
We then had to contact some lawyers and looked at our options. Apparently we had a great case and probably would have prevailed.
But we quickly realized a couple of things:
- The legal dispute would have taken a long time to be resolved
- The cost for the legal fees was going to be very overwhelming
We thought about it long and hard, and ultimately decided to change our name. We simply became another victim of corporate legal bullying. The threat of the legal fees, on top of all the stress this was causing us, was too much for us to bear. We are just a bunch of nice people from Colorado, it is not in our nature to become mean and angry corporate folks - not healthy - not worse it.
So here were are - we are now VapeShop.com
As mentioned above - a name change is very risky - and we are bound to loose some significant internet traffic because of it. So if you do any kind of social media or online posting - it would be very helpful and greatly appreciated if you could post some links about our new address.
We sincerely thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
