The articles in this section provide information about trademarks. This includes what trademarks do and don’t protect, how you can avoid infringing the trademarks of other people when posting to Facebook, and how Facebook addresses reports of trademark infringement.
If you believe someone is infringing your trademark, you can fill out this form. You can also apply to use Brand Rights Protection, a tool that allows brands to identify and report content that misuses their intellectual property.
Please note that laws in different countries may vary. For more information on trademark law, you can visit the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office or the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Facebook can’t provide you with legal advice, so you may want to speak with an attorney if you have more questions about trademarks.
