@nick_mihaylov Berlin and Barcelona only?
Nikolay MihaylovMaker@nick_mihaylov · Investment Analyst
@faisal_hassanx Yes, we expand on a city per city basis. Our very first market was Berlin and we recently launched Barcelona. We are expanding to more European cities in the next couple of months.

@azizfirat Well, that's embarassing. Our branding was done by a Berlin agency and we thought their work was genuine and original. We will investigate and provide an update on that. And thanks for the link! :)

@azizfirat @nick_mihaylov I wouldn't worry too much about it. Legally you only have to worry about "likelihood of confusability". Would you confuse the two? I would argue one is clearly a bike, one is clearly a face, and very unlikely to be confused. Not much to worry about here.

@azizfirat @wiggy Thanks for the input Noel. We are still consulting this with legal professionals as we don't want to get in legal trouble while being 100% focused on building an awesome travel platform. We will update you soon! :)

@wiggy @nick_mihaylov might not be a legal thing but from a brand point of view, I would go back to the agency and ask some questions...

Downloaded the app. Where does 360 play into the experience? I can't tell before I click when I am going to get a 360 experience and when it is just a photo.

@tomfrazier Hey Tom. That's a legit argument. We got that already from other users too. In th list view, you can see a small badge on the site saying 360 video. We are thinking of changing that to an icon. Once you open the tour, you have a play button at the center of the screen. We are changing this to an looping animation (similar to that of 360 videos on fb). I will update you once these changes are implemented.
