US’ Co Meta to Sue Facebook or Infringing Upon Its Name

In an interesting turn of events, a Chicago-based tech firm called Meta Company is going to court against Facebook, saying the social network stole its name and “livelihood” after it rebranded its name to Meta.

In a statement, Meta Company Founder Nate Skulic said that when Facebook failed to buy them, it aimed to “bury” the company by force of media. On October 28, “Facebook decided to commit trademark infringement and call them Meta,” Skulic said in a public letter.

“They couldn’t buy us, so they tried to bury us by force of media. We shouldn’t be surprised by these actions-from a company that continually says one thing and does another,” Skulic added.

Meta Company has decided to file the necessary legal actions against Facebook. “This message may be regarded as a public cease and desist,” Skulic said.

“Facebook and its operating officers are deceitful and action in bad faith, not only towards us, but to all of humanity.”

Facing intense scrutiny over users’ data privacy, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg last month announced that his company will have a new name, Meta.

Somewhat predictably, Zuckerberg downplayed that this rebranding, the first in Facebook’s 17 years of existence, is to divert a barrage of bad PR.

The name “Facebook” doesn’t fully encompass everything the company does now, and is still closely linked to one product, he added.

“But over time, I hope we are seen as a met adverse company.”   S-ET
