Facebook Claims Infringement Over Nigerian Site Facekobo.com [case #486923]

For the 2nd time in less than a year Facebook is attempting to bulldoze me from fear of competition, FaceKobo was formed with our local KOBO, unit of Naira. Initially Facebook had claimed that I built Facekobo like Facebook, adopting its colors, since that didn't fly, they are coming for the name, the first thing that comes to my mind is 'who the hell do they think they are'...??......While contacted Nigerian lawyers home and abroad were easily intimidated by the name FACEBOOK, my Jewish lawyer asked me to ignore their rant...saying "Facebook knows what to do" if they consider me a threat, back then Facekobo was ranked 1.4 million today at 260,000 they R back...........what do you advise?



To Whom It May Concern,

We are writing concerning your registration and use of the domain name facekobo.com, which contains the famous Facebook trademark.

As you undoubtedly know, Facebook is the leading online social network service. Facebook adopted the name and trademark Facebook in February 2004 and, since that time, Facebook has actively used the Facebook name and trademark in connection with its online social network service, including maintaining the web site www.Facebook.com. The term Facebook is one of the most famous trademarks on the Internet. Facebook owns exclusive trademark rights to the Facebook name as a result of numerous trademark registrations in the United States and internationally, as well as related common law rights. Accordingly, Facebook enjoys broad trademark rights in its name.

Facebook has made a substantial investment in developing and providing its services. As a result of Facebook’s pioneering efforts and devoting substantial effort and resources to providing only high quality services, the Facebook name and trademarks are widely known among the consuming public worldwide, and the name and trademarks embody substantial and valuable goodwill.

Accordingly, we were concerned when we learned of your registration and use of facekobo.com. As we hope you can appreciate, protection of its trademarks is very important to Facebook. Your registration and use of facekobo.com violates the Lanham Act (15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq.) because it infringes and dilutes the famous Facebook trademark.

Infringement occurs when a third party’s use of a company’s trademark (or a confusingly similar variation thereof) is likely to confuse consumers as to the affiliation, sponsorship or endorsement of the third party’s services. Trademark dilution occurs when a third party’s use of a variation of a company’s trademark is likely to lessen the distinctiveness of the company’s famous trademark.

We have filed several proceedings before the United Nation's World Intellectual Property Organization's arbitration panel. Facebook has prevailed in each case and the domain names at issue were all ordered to be transferred to Facebook. Facebook is concerned that your unauthorized use of the Facebook name may cause confusion as to whether you or your company’s activities are authorized, endorsed or sponsored by Facebook when, in fact, they are not.

We understand that you may have registered facekobo.com without full knowledge of the law in this area. However, Facebook is concerned about your use of the Facebook trademark in your domain name. As you may know, the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act provides for serious penalties (up to $100,000 per domain name) against persons who, without authorization, use, sell, or offer for sale a domain name that infringes another’s trademark.

While Facebook respects your right of expression and your desire to conduct business on the Internet, Facebook must enforce its own rights in order to protect its valuable and famous trademark. For these reasons, and to avoid consumer confusion, Facebook must insist that you immediately stop using facekobo.com and disable any site available at that address. You should not sell, offer to sell, or transfer the domain name to a third party and should let the domain registration expire.

Please confirm in writing that you will agree to resolve this matter as requested. If we do not receive confirmation from you that you will comply with our request, we will have no choice but to pursue all available remedies against you.

Sincerely,

Ethel

Facebook actually made attempts to shut down Facekobo.com last year through a request to my host, but they got a shocker their lobbyist law that allows a big company to swallow new startups does not apply to my host country. If I had bought my domain in USA or was hosting in USA, I would have been taken out without notice. It is for reasons like this that one appreciates countries like Russia, China and Iran countries the United states can not bully into submission.

You need to find out 1st if Facebook trademarked the name.
It's similar to Microsoft no one can use any domain containing Microsoft or you will be sued.

If they did trademark Facebook my brother let the name go. I hope your lawyer knows his job properly or else you could be be the one to pay Facebook.

Don't let people deceive you.
You also need to do a lot of digging.
Try to ask questions about the domain on namepros.com it's a forum for domains related issues only.

Goodluck.

My question
They have the right over your domain becuase you infringe into facebook trade mark.

For example in your about page you wrote abt facebook: Facekobo is the social network to connect, share,
advertise. The Facebook alternative for users
dissatisfied with Facebook's handling of users
privacy settings and its mind control experiments.



You made a big mistake bro by writing the above. In real sense the have no case (u will win them) but the above will make them win you easily.

I am a domainer (i buy and sell domains). I have some knowledge about trademark.


If you are wise follow this tips i will give you now.

1. Remove every of your write up that contain facebook etc.

2. Remove/ block every ad that show facebook.

3. remove every logo of facebook from ur site.

Though this is some how a serous case because you are also in the same niche which facebook. also ur domain was reg jan 2015... All this a pointing to bad faith bro.

Now this is my brotherly advice to you:

Take down your domain name reg another domain and continue with ur site but never for get advice: 1, 2 and 3 even when you have gotten another domain.



Once again take down the domain.


GOD BLESS NIGERIA

Aside using their trademark on your write up or logo etc, they don't have a case agains you. You cannot trade mark face or book as a single word. Face can be used on any domain . Also book can be used to form a domain name as long as its not facebook. If suppose you have some thing like facebookgirls. Facebookboys, facebookchat etc as domain name, then they have every right to take down your domain.


Likewise, microsoft cannot trademark micro and soft as single name, so some one can use micro with any other name to form a domain name as long as it does not have microsoft attached to it. One can use microman, micropicks, microfun as a domain name but if microsoft is attached, then microsoft can take it down

Since yours is facekobo, facebook don't have a say to shut it down. My advice will be for you to remove every of their trademark in your write up or logo or adverts to play safe because aside that, they don't have a case

Dont mind them jo. angry

I just visited your site. seems you have removed all trademarks regarding facebook. if you have, then you are safe.

What does facebook mean, so we can't use our own naira and kobo to form our own domain name or start-up because the name face is there or because it will confuse their users? Do they own the naira? Big bully all the way from the US coming to find trouble here in our local corner in Nigeria. angry so If theirs was FaceNaira.com, they would have probably stopped Seun from registering nairaland? rubbish!

Please you have a case. If they want the domain so badly they should settle you then and get it, not threatening you.

By the way, your site still needs a lot of work, You still need to identify your business model and your site's USP (unique selling point), then add a few addictive features. Making it look like another facebook or twitter-like clone or any of the social networks currently on will not fly. Find that Unique perspective (Nigerian Flavour) and your site will fly.

Goodluck!

Speechless, As for me, I say, stay calm and watch what is on your site. Do not involve facebook in any of your content so as not to complicate the whole issue. If they have trouble with the domain, let them negotiate, do not reply them until their offer comes, reply them with scope oo, sound English and lovely grammatical expression. Reply them like you are a huge company and not some small Blogger. Let them keep on quoting law, please I would want to know who you bought the domain from?

From an objective point of view,
if your site was registered Jan 2016 and its a social network for friends and family with the name facekobo.com
then certainly, your domain name drew inspiration from Facebook.com domain name.
In that regard, they have a strong case against you.
