Facebook Wants to Trademark The Word “Face”… Really?

In an interesting twist in Facebook news today, word has it that Mark Zuckerberg and company are trying to actually trademark the word face.

I’m not sure I even know what that means?

I mean, what would happen to shows like Face The Nation, and others like it that have the word face in it.

Can Facebook do such a thing?

According to HuffPost, via TechCrunch:

It is not just the word “book” at the end of a company or product name that Facebook might object to. If it has its way, the word “Face” at the beginning of a name might also bring out its lawyers. In fact, Facebook is currently trying to register the word “Face” as a trademark.

Thoughts?
