Desktop Post It Notes vs Post It Notes


Following the success of paper-based post-it notes, 3M has created a computer software version of the post-it notes. The company has registered its Post-It trademark for its computer software.

Desktop Post It Notes or Desktop Notes?


3M is neither the only nor the first company to design computer software that allows putting up notes on computer desktops (See desktop notes history). Similar applications can be purchased or freely downloaded from the web. In some websites (typically software directories), these applications are refered to as desktop post it notes. As far as 3M is concerned, using the term Post-It to refer to its competitor' products infringes its registered trademarks.

Desktop Notes has been elected as a more generic name refering to applications that allow putting up post-it notes liked windows on computer desktops.
