The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.

Lawyers love this stuff

This week Facebook sued Teachbook for trademark infringement, but when I looked into it, the domain Guestbook.com was registered in 1997 to a different company than the one who recently registered the name Guestbook with the USPTO.  I’m thinking that whoever has the largest Checkbook can win this game, but what exactly do they end up with?  Besides, the lawyers always have the last laugh. They write the Rulebook, which is more of a mystery than it is a Cookbook.

Who was confused and thought that Teachbook.com was run by the same folk that run Facebook.com?  Anyone? I whined and laughed about trademarks here.
