I wonder if there is a facebook group for forensic linguists? If so perhaps facebook could get some advice. Apparently facebook is trying to claim ownership of the terms face and book. It appears that they are suing an online teaching community and other computing firms.  Next, they are eyeing up the word like. Why haven’t Apple gone after the orchardists?

Good links on the various cases here

No doubt this will appear as an assignment topic in 172.236 so start the discussion now!
