Dfinity Sues Meta Over Infinity LogoMeta, Facebook’s parent company, has been sued by Dfinity Foundation, a Switzerland-based non-profit behind the Internet Computer blockchain. According to the lawsuit, Dfinity’s legal team contended there was trademark infringement when Meta Platforms attempted to register the ‘infinity symbol’ for its logo. According to Dfinity’s legal team, Meta had only filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in March 2022, whereas the same office granted Dfinity registration in October 2018. Dfinity further stated that the infinity symbol has been used on the company's website since March 2017. According to Dfinity’s contentions in the lawsuit, “Meta and Dfinity seek to attract the same users, namely those who are looking for an innovative and different internet experience, created by users, for users. Further, both Meta and Dfinity utilise the same marketing channels such that consumers will likely encounter the marks through those same channels [...] Despite knowledge of Dfinity’s mark, Meta chose to proceed with its application to obtain registration in some of the same or similar areas in which Dfinity has already obtained registration for its mark.” https://cointelegraph.com/news/dfinity-foundation-files-lawsuit-against-meta-over-infinity-logo
