Regading “prior art” on my pending MouthCam trademark

Hoo boy, I should have googled “mouthcam” first. The porno industry thought of it first, only they point the lens in the opposite direction. And just as you’d expect, skanky ho’s don’t practice good dental hygene. Yeacchh!

So, do I rename the MouthCam or do I take the term back from the smut peddlers? I’m already #2 in Google…trust me, you don’t want to see #1.

  1. …you actually checked what #1 was? Eww…

    I say go for it, get the name. The pr0n industry uses everything already, so whatever name you come up with, they’ll either already have it, or start using it as soon as they find out.. HFJ’s MouthCam for life!

  2. Well, I hate to be the one to say this, but ‘kuchi’-cam is always a possibility πŸ™‚ Somehow that’s dirtier than mouth-cam in the pr0n industry…. 口カパ。。。 come to think of it, they’ve probably already take kuchi-cam but with a different spelling….

  3. MouthCam…you can’t beat it. Go ahead and take, just don’t teach your sons until they’re a little older or before you know they will have a better site than the porn industry. I guess you could rename it. Hmmmm…what’s a good name? They have fish eye lens, why not fish mouth cam? Maybe the porn world has that one too? I did a search on google for “openwidecam” and it came up with no results, but if you put a space between wide & cam and oh my…good stuff from the porn world! Good luck coming up with anything that the porn world doesn’t use. I will put this on the back burner to simmer for awhile…

    I just checked and fishmouthcam came up with no results on google. Add any space and it finds a ton of links. still simmering…

  4. I was thinking of “NoHandsCam” as an alternative. Only problem is you can see my hands.

    I quite like MouthCam, and I’m trying to think of more good 1st person scenes to video. Maybe I should rent Being John Malcovich for inspiration.

    I have to remember to tilt my head back a little next time too. The last one was pointing a bit down.

  5. How about a Japanese/English play on words. ‘mute’ or 焑手-cam. Kinda works a couple of ways right? ’empty handed’ for the japanese ‘mute’, ‘mute’ for the english because the camera is in ur mouth.

  6. You may have mentioned it, but i’m not understanding how you are holding the phone in your mouth. Could you walk in front of a mirror in one of your next videos?

    I just froogled “mouthcam”, there doesn’t seem to be any product on the market called mouthcam. I say go for it.

  7. You know you put down what you searched so I had to look and it was pretty weird. He was pretty mean to her! lol

    Hey why don’t you call it the beak cam?

  8. @Carl: One of the things I’ll never understand is how anyone can get turned on by one person demeaning or mistreating the other. Someone who gets it could try their best to explain it to me and it would still never make sense.

    Reminds me of a story. In college, I lived on a coed dorm floor. One night I was talking to some friends about how I didn’t have a girlfriend. One girl said, “The problem is you’re too nice. If you want a girl, you have to be kind of mean to her,” and the other girls agreed. I said, “That’s messed up. If a girl wants me to be mean to her, I don’t want her.” I still feel the same way.

  9. Curiosity got the best of me and I checked out the first link. Damn you curiosity! I’d stick with mouthcam. Apple and Linksys share iPhone, why not share mouthcam.

  10. You really should stick with your ideas.. Blizzard didn’t change the name of World of Warcraft after the adult industry released that serie, didn’t they? And pick just about any random (semi-)popular movie, and I can guarantee you there will be an adult version of it too. Just stick with MouthCam. You have a first place in google to conquer.

    Google should implement a ‘safe search’ mode for normal searches too…

  11. Hey rich How ’bout “mouthheldcam”! i googled it and there doesn’t seem to be any perversion associated to the term.

  12. Not ‘rokame’… I was afraid that’s how it would look. It’s 口ーカパ、くけーカパ. The kanji for ‘kuchi’… Kame is a shortening of kamera. Since someone else already mentioned kuchi-cam this message seems irrelevant πŸ™‚

  13. you were thinking NoHandsCam. That’s pretty close to what I was thinking…HandsFreeCam. But that is already a product:

    Saliva Cam was another choice because I always picture you having to wipe off your phone every time you apply your bicuspids to it but that is already used in that certain industry.

  14. In the end, there’s nothing disgusting or perverted about either of the words “mouth” or “cam,” and it seems that there isn’t a widespread pornographic connotation of the compound word “MouthCam.” I think if you asked 1000 people their interpretation of its meaning, only a handfull would say, “a video showing a penis’s eye view of oral sex.” If someone asked me, my guess would have been it had something to do with dentistry.
