A small company has beaten back attempts by Facebook to get its trademark lawsuit dismissed:
Timelines launched a website called Timelines.com in 2009 that enables users to track historical events and their personal lives online. Two years later, Facebook Inc. launched a major new feature it called "timeline," which similarly allows users to highlight their lives online in chronological order.
The Chicago company filed its lawsuit weeks after Facebook introduced its "timeline" feature.
It's amusing that Facebook alleged that "timeline" was a generic word, while at the same time have fought vigorously to control their "poke" and "like" terms.
