According to Chris Crum of WebProNews, here’s part of the beginning of the suit filed by Facebook:
Defendant Teachbook.com LLC rides on the coattails of the fame and enormous goodwill of the FACEBOOK trademark. Misappropriating the distinctive BOOK portion of Facebook's trademark…The Teachbook site is more than just socializing, though. According to WebProNews,
It lets teachers create lesson plans, instructional videos, and other teaching resources. It lets users manage their classroom communications with secure parent-teacher communication tools….It lets teachers communicate with colleagues through discussion, chat, blogs, etc. It lets them create and manage online courses and instructional modules. It lets teachers manage student grades by recording, calculating, and sharing them within the Gradebook.Crum also points out:
It's also worth noting that Facebook just launched a product called "Facebook Places," even though Google (their direct competitor) already had a product called "Google Places".What do you think? Will Facebook win the lawsuit?
