Facebook Sues Faceporn, Apparently Believing It Owns The Words Face & Book
from the so-my-bookface-site-is-a-nonstarter dept
Earlier this year we covered how Facebook was suing a site called Teachbook.com, claiming that any social network that ended in “book” was infringing on its trademarks. It’s continued to do so, with at least a threat against the site Placebook. Of course, it seems that it’s not only the “book” that Facebook claims ownership of, but the “face” part as well. Reader marak was the first of a few of you to point to the news that Facebook is suing the site Faceporn for trademark infringement (the article says copyright, but I’m pretty sure it means trademark — isn’t a publication like PC Mag suposed to understand the difference?).
