    According to the owners/creators it doesn't stand for anything. It was added to make a distinct name for the product.

        I thought the 'v' stood for Virtual as in Virtual Bulletin (Board)...

            im just glad that it dosn't stand for virtual, cause i was gunna use that word for part of the name of opensource board im writing. i hope people who think the 'V' in vbulletin stands for 'Virtual' don't think im trying stealing their name haha. and really, that is not my intention at all.

                of course not. i simply want to use the word 'virtual' in the name of my BBS and was making sure that was not apart of vbulletins trademark.

                  It stands for "Peace Through Superior Firepower" -- At least, in the forum battle for supremacy.

                    vBulletin is not a registered trademark in the US, anyway.

                        It doesn't have to be registered to be a legal trademark. They have already clearly established it as a trademark through its use, and can legally put "TM" on it. You don't have to to register a mark to put "TM" or "SM", just "R".

                        It helps to register though. That's what I did with mine.

                          Just because its not a Registered US trademark doesnt mean it hasnt been registered for internation trademark.

                              it just occured to me... U, V
                              so it would be next seeing how vB was suppose to be a PHP version of UBB.

                              Sorta kinda reminds you why some people call vBulletin, v BB.
