BMW Owners Club Gets New Name
Club Re-Branding to BimmerOwnersClub.com
In April this year, we were approached by BMW’s lawyers about various aspects of our website and club logo that they believed infringed on BMW’s trademark (work mark). Their main argument being that guests and members of our club website might conclude that we are directly associated with BMW, which of course we are not.
Various letters later and despite the significant changes we made to our club site (you will have noticed the very prominent disclaimers), we are still faced with the potential threat over our club domain name. With that in mind, we have therefore taken the view to move to new shores by renaming ourselves:
All content will move across and the site and club will function exactly the same as before. The website, our Facebook page and Twitter account will all be moving over to bimmerownersclub.com.
These changes will all be taking place over the next few days, so please be patient with us while we transfer everything over.
We are doing this with a heavy heart, having been known as BMW Owners Club since 2009. Our mission continues to be supportive of BMW owners in any way we possibly can and we want to focus on doing exactly that.
Please support in making the new site even more successful and the club even larger than it currently is, please help spread the word!
