So Facebook has a trademark on the word "Face"... interesting. Sad, but interesting.
DEVELOPING: fuNctioN cReeP to obtain TM for "function" and "creep"!!!!

Facebook, which has never hesitated to go after companies it believes were trying to leverage its name recognition, has received the go-ahead to trademark the word "face."

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday issued a Notice of Allowance that essentially says that based on an examination of the social-networking site's request, the company is entitled to a trademark on "face," as it applies to the name Facebook. To get final approval, Facebook now has to file a Statement of Use that says it will use the trademark in commerce...
