Name Squatting on Social Media Sites

Business Owners may want to check social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and other such sites to see if a social media account user has registered an account name that was identical to your federally registered trademark. Such a phenomenon appears to be growing. Twitter has a specialized “Name Squatting” page on which instructions exist on how to report a name squatting incident to Twitter – Some vigilance is required on the part of businesses to protect a person from using a Twitter or Facebook name and using the name for less than commendable purposes.
