Facebook Trying To Trademark “Face” and “Book,” Eventually Taking Away All Nouns
By Megan Friedman | @megancarol | August 27, 2010
But anyway, trademark law doesnt work like how you think it does. It is very much limited to avoiding consumer confusion.
Back in 2007, Paris Hilton got the trademark for "Thats Hot".
Again, it only applies where consumer confusion might occur, and you can use those works in any other aspect of daily life.
