The Terms of Service still uses the term Stack Exchange, Inc.

However, I believe that the name is now Stack Overflow, Inc. , so I believe that should be changed to that. It is weird to have the wrong name in a legal document.

Yes, I actually read the Terms of Service. You should also do that.

    Wait, you actually read the Terms of Service? What is this madness? :P

The legal company name is still Stack Exchange, Inc.

Though, we are now using Stack Overflow as our brand / trade name.

    Okay, but shouldn't it read Stack Exchange Inc. (“Stack Overflow”) in that case? (That is actually quite confusing, isn't it?)

    Legal documents tend do be confusing, don't they?

    @wythagoras As I understand it, it's one of these deals: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trade_name.
