So, you thought that circle-R next to the LinkedIn logo was only for the whole name. Well, now it appears it also applies to just the “in” part. The abbreviated LinkedIn logo (seen in the above link) is now showing up on sites across the web, including that of a prominent Presidential candidate (scroll down), and on LinkedIn’s own . Makes sense. With one little word and a cute Web 2.0 logo, everyone in the world can see that you’re “in” the club, “in” the know…and just plain “in”.
Mork just wonders if LinkedIn has a trademark infringement team ready to protect their new trademark. The LinkedIn lawyers just better leave In-N-Out alone. Or Mork will have to go animal style on their ass.
