Scripps Network has changed the name of their room rating site from Rate My Room to Rate My Space. It was believed to be changed due to pending trademark rights that already existed with RateMyRoom.net, another social network and interior decorating rating site that already existed. RateMyRoom.net is an online community for decorating enthusiasts to upload photo's of their rooms, write and share reviews and get decorating advice. The room with the highest ratings gets prominetely displayed on the Featured Room Page.
