Facebook and Trademarks


Since 13/06/2009, Facebook enables its users to register URL addresses of the type Facebook/your trademark.

This aims at making the search easier on the social network, by an easily identifiable address.
The registrations are available according to the first-come-first-served rule.
In case of a registration interfering with an intellectual property right, Facebook provided an offence declaration against the intellectual property rights, enabling the intellectual property rights holders to prevent this registration.
