Glatt means smooth- I.E the lung was checked and it is smooth.

Not Glatt- means it wasnt checked, so it could be trifa.

Beit yosef is a company that sfaradim trust.
1. Basic translation
2. Wrong
3. Which Company is that?

For sure

It is a hechsher that follows a sfardy standard.

Try and open a business named beit yosef and you will receive a letter from the owner of that name:)

actually many religious sephardim don't use that hashgacha.
I went to a Yeshiva call Bais Yosef and I don't believe they ever received a letter from Badatz Bait Yosef....

Glatt is named after Glatt Mart.
And Kosher is a registered trademark of Kosher Delight.

Any other insights?

They actually filed a claim against Rabbi Caro's estate for infringement. Long story...

No need to find new friends. Just study the halacha. שחיטת בית יוסף is not a company name. Anyone who checks the lung and finds it completely clean without any serches calls his meat beis yosef. The Rema is מקיל that even you find serches it is still kosher if it comes off a certain way which according to him means that there was never a hole there.

Happens to be, last week I bought a cow and went down with a very well respected שוחט to the slaughterhouse and I was there during the whole process. I was lucky BH that the lung was all clear so it's שחיטת בית יוסף and I have now for the next few months my own kosher מהודר meat!

My comment was to point out how unfunny the other comment was in my opinion. Thus my dismay with fellow DDFers who gave it like. 

Regarding the discussion at hand, I do not disagree with you regarding the standard beit yosef upholds. However, based on your description any Hechsher( I.E company) can put a beis yosef stamp on it, if it meets those standards. 

This is not the case. Only one hechsher (i.E company) can use the beit yosef label.

This is simply not true, I've seen it many times on meat from many different hechsherim.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
