Third party complaints against the trademark Meta and its logo

New name, new visual identity: Facebook becomes Meta. Numerous third-party complaints have been filed for trademark infringement on the name Meta or a similar logo. Among them is Meta PC, which is asking for a sum of USD 20 million to transfer its trademark to Facebook. Trademark searches were conducted prior to the launch and despite the obstacles identified, Meta was launched. So what is the point of conducting searches? To find out which brands will be problematic and to define a strategy to overcome the claims, at the best cost.. There are several options at the time of launch. Give up in the face of “endless” obstacles… Launch without worrying about them… Or see “beyond”- identify, protect and launch.
