Facebook Trademarks “Book”

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA – In a move following the trademark of “face”, Facebook  is trademarking the use of the word “book”. Says Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s founder, “The trademarking of ‘book’ will definitely net us money that we need for Facebook’s future. All of Facebook’s users will thank us for the improved interface and faster speed that will follow the trademarking of ‘book’.” Apparently, people will now have to pay Facebook if they want to use the word “book” for commercial reasons. A preliminary royalty of 25% has been set, which means 25% of all book sales in industrialized countries will go to Facebook. The expected net income will be relatively $725 billion the first year, but protests by private companies as well as Apple (for its MacBook) are expected in the near future.
