Instagram seems ready to stop other wordmarks from including the word "gram"


Instagram seems to be quite aggressive in both the trademark and patent areas.  It blocks apps using the word “gram” or “Insta”.   It is acquiring patents for all its specialized filters. There’s a story in The Next Web by Bryan Clakr here.

It's also trying to stop other companies from using the word “gram” anywhere in a wordmark all around the world, at least in Europe.  It has run into contact with Flipagram.
