On March 17, Rob Dezendorf and Danielle Gibson were 17 episodes into their podcast devoted to all things Quibi, when they received a cease-and-desist letter. “They were like, ‘Well, you can’t use the name Quibi, you can’t tell anyone that you’re about Quibi, you can talk about Quibi, but no one can know through your title and you can’t have any artwork that resembles our stuff.'" So the pair have changed the name to Streamiverse, and they've decided not to focus on pumping up the new shortform streaming service. We decided, ‘You know what? We’re not gonna let a billion-dollar company bully us. We’re not going to let them get us down. We’re gonna rise above this,'" Gibson said.
