IG GURU obtains its second registration for the IG GURU brand in May of 2019. The phrase IG GURU was marked in September of 2018, and the icon itself marked this month. “Having our logo be something that we own and have control over is important to not only us but the IG community”, says Andrew Ysasi, President of IG GURU. Intellectual property is a critical component of corporations and organizations. “The logo exemplifies our community. No one person is the IG GURU, the community as a whole is IG GURU. The logo represents a welcoming and communicative presence that reflects our brand and community wonderfully”, says Ysasi.
