I can understand them going after people if they blatantly copy them, but going after a site because it has book in the name is retarded. They do not own the word book, much less face.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Faceporn is down until further notice,"


Unforseen circumstances ?!?

- Oh yes, let's copy the layout, color scheme, name it something "-book", and nobody will sue us. Right.

Does anyone else find it absolutely pathetic that they would sue a small website used to assist teachers? I don't have too much sympathy for "faceporn" given the circumstances, but it seems like facebook has become a little too lawsuit happy.

this is an atempt at blatant abuse of what is compywritable. so was teh case when MS sued lindows over name, MS won btw. I so hope face book doesn't win m i coudlmaybe udnerstand if they said change your name , but tow ant all the moeny they earned ? i seriously doubt the similarity had any thing to do with how much money a pron site made. if they named it the gaggly goo social site it still woudlhave ranked in alot of money just because it is a porn site,

facebook like most companies is ran by abounch of whiney a-joles that want to milk life of every thing they can , the sad thing aobut the "big " chase for money , is it's not really needed ,only humans put need on money or any thing for that matter. but getting off on a tangent. my point being these giuys got enough money and that siute made no revenue based solely on it's name.bunch of greedy asses

It seems completely legit to me. After all Apple is allowed to sue anyone who has a company or product name starting with the letter i (except for intel).
