What Is WaveCloud?

I came across a curious trademark filing for something that seems to be entering the eBook space.

See after the filing for additional information too.

They have a website and on their contact page is clearly mention of books:


Click = big

Just seeing the badly-done website, I would have written this off as a one-man outfit to be ignored.

However, they’re also listed as a member of BISG — the Book Industry Study Group. But clicking on their link at post time here delivered up a 404. If someone there had the brains to join BISG, I have to wonder if this is a serious effort, despite the appalling website.

Their Careers page boasts:

WaveCloud is an aggressive start-up backed by successful entrepreneurs who will soon be launching a “game changing” service.

So, has anyone heard of them before now?

One response to “What Is WaveCloud?

  1. Based on the current job listings and this one from last year suggests it’s an ecommerce play:

    “WaveCloud is looking for some assistance with our eCommerce web site development. This is a free-lance, temporary job but it could become full time.” http://www.thedenveregotist.com/jobs/freelance/wavecloud-corporation/it-development-and-architecture

    The contact us option makes me think it’s another Smashwords-like startup, which clearly the world is demanding. Meh.
