The hard feelings between Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and a former college classmate have boiled over into another legal dispute, this time over the online hangout’s trademark.
In a petition filed yesterday, Aaron Greenspan is seeking to cancel Facebook’s legal claim to its name. Greenspan, 25, argues Zuckerberg, 23, had no right to trademark the Facebook name in 2005 because the term had been used generically for decades at Harvard University, where they first met. What’s more, Greenspan maintains he used the term “Face Book” a few months before Zuckerberg unveiled his website in 2004.
