WHAT:On April 6, 2010, Gaggle.Net, Inc. (Delaware Corporation), based in Bloomington, IL USA, was issued a trademark for GaggleTM from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
WHY:Due to an increase in media coverage regarding the Gaggle – Local Message Board App, available on Apple iTunes and the Google Play Store, media members are encouraged to recognize the clear distinction between Gaggle.Net, Inc. and the app offered by Factyle, Inc.
DETAILS:For almost 15 years, Gaggle’s mission has been focused on student safety so educators can have the confidence to allow learners to take advantage of current technology for communication, collaboration and productivity.
