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:
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?
