According to TechCrunch.com Facebook.com has been awarded a trademark on the word “Face”.
The trademark is for:
“usages in “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, none primarily featuring or relating to motoring or to cars.”
Looks like there will be more to come.
TechCrunch seemed quite surprised that the trademark office awarded a trademark in a one word generic term but I’m not sure why as we have said for quite a while almost every word, every 2 letter and 3 letter combo and phrase or saying is trademarked.
Even the letter “f” is trademarked
There are 4 trademarks on “F” and none are owned by Facebook
