Facebook Files Trademark Lawsuit Against FriendFinder

Facebook files trademark lawsuit against owner of FriendFinder. Facebook, Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Various, Inc., parent company of FriendFinder, along with a couple related companies and John Does. The case was filed in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Califonia on Wednesday. The entire complaint hasn’t been posted online, but it involves Various, Inc’s trademarks for FriendFinder and AdultFriendFinder. I know that Facebook has called its tool for finding new friends on Facebook “Friend Finder” in the past, although I don’t see much branding for that now. It’s not clear if this action is related to that. I’ll post more details when the court posts the actual complaint.
