    Patent Office Agrees To Facebook’s “Face” Trademark

    Facebook is just a payment away from trademarking the word “Face.” As of today the U.S. Patent And Trademark Office has sent the social networking site a Notice of Allowance, which means they have agreed to grant the “Face” trademark to Facebook...

    at what point will we realize that those who profit off imaginary property need to be abandoned on a small island, to starve.

    Appalling.

    How can people who care about liberty or privacy in the information age still associate with this company?

    (As Stallman rightly pointed out, members are not Facebook's customers, they are its product.)

    this is werid because they have been taking to court and suing everyone that has the word "book" in it.

    now they'll be able to sue everything that has a face... you, me, everyone!

    would be cool if they sue apple over the term "face"-time

    I am just waiting for the day when I will have to initial a point on some document and I will be taken to jail for copyright infringement. My initials are MS

    Incoming lawsuits against Webster Dictionary for having the word "Face" and "Book" inside it.

    Incoming lawsuits against hotels and airlines for the term "booking" rooms and flights.

    Don't worry, the patent is ONLY for "Telecommunications services". I guess there will be no more "face to face conversations" on video chat that's all...COME ON... I don't know if that is worse than the fact that have a patent for "Ranking search results based on the frequency of clicks on the search results by members of a social network who are within a predetermined degree of separation". Now no one can say your friends like this maybe you will...unless...anyone want to create a social network that does not include "...a server computer and a database of registered users, a method for generating search results for display at a user computer in response to a search query transmitted to the server computer by a registered user from the user computer..." we can write it all on paper XD

    This is another one of those things that fall into the do-da category.
