Facebook To Own “Face”

Facebook seeks permission to trademark the term “Face”

Social networking site Facebook is all set to lay claim to the word “Face”. In a bizarre move to stop people from duplicating its name, popular social networking site Facebook has requested permission to trademark the word “Face”.

According to the reports, the move has met with-approval by The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office which has agreed to grant the “Face” trademark to Facebook and has awarded it a Notice of Allowance, the first step to full approval. But the trademark will come with a series of terms and conditions that will have to be followed namely, it needs to pay an issue fee within three months, file a Statement of Use that shows it is using the trademark for commerce (providing a service or goods) aside from “Facebook.”

The trade mark though will be limited to Telecommunication services, namely, providing online chat rooms and electronic bulletin boards for transmission of messages among computer users in the field of general interest and concerning social and entertainment subject matter.
