Groupon, the industry leader in the hugely popular but possibly fading group daily deal space, just announced a new acquisition. The company has taken over intellectual trademark ownership of April Fool’s Day, which henceforth is to be referred to as “Groupon Presents April Fool’s Day.”
Today, the company announced:
You’ll never again be confused by other corporations’ April 1 pranks, since Groupon will be taking friendly, but swift, but hostile, legal actions against any nonlicensed April Fools’ Day™ joke.
Unlicensed pranksters beware.
