Meta PC vs. Meta (Facebook)

·1 min read

On Oct. 28, 2021, Facebook Inc. filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office an application for the registration of “Meta” as a trademark for several goods and services, including in Class 9 for computers and software. “Meta PC,” an Arizona company, has an earlier application on Aug. 23, 2021 for the registration of “Meta” also for Class 9 and for computers and software. TMZ reports that the owner of Meta PC said that it is willing to change its name if Mark Zuckerberg pays them US$20 million. On Twitter, Meta PC joked that it is changing its name to “Facebook.” The USPTO still has to rule on the said trademark applications.
