Facebook Sues Lamebook for Trademark Infringement

Facebook Inc., the world’s biggest social-networking website, filed a trademark-infringement lawsuit against Lamebook LLC, a company that says it posts on the web “the funniest and lamest of Facebook.”

The lawsuit, filed yesterday in federal court in San Jose, California, follows a letter that Facebook’s lawyers wrote to Lamebook in July describing their infringement claims. The letter contended Lamebook isn’t a legally protected parody, as the company claimed, because it doesn’t “provide any critique or comment of Facebook itself.”
