Today’s domain-name mystery involves a series of web addresses based on “timelinemoviemaker.”
We’ve yet to learn whether the registering party was a movie service for Facebook’s timeline; a new effort by the social network’s legal adversary, Timelines.com; or some other possibility.
Fusible reported that the following domains were registered via brand protection company MarkMonitor:
Facebook is a MarkMonitor client, Fusible pointed out, but so are dozens of other deep-pocketed companies.
As for the Timelines.com theory, the digital scrapbooking company and the social network are at odds over the former’s claim that it owns the trademark to the word “timeline,” so if these URLs are not the doing of either company, could more legal action be on the horizon?
Readers do you have any theories about who registered these domains?
