Facebook Going After Designbook Because All The Books Are Belong To Them | Techdirt
Facebook has decided that they want a trademark on all words of the form "*book". The trademark office won't issue a trademark on that (too general) and so they simply declared that they have an unregistered trademark and they aggressively sue over it. Interestingly, they also put a clause in Facebook's T&Cs saying you agree that they have the trademark.
