Sunday, 2 October 2011 Sues Facebook for New Timeline Feature

Timelines Inc., a small venture capital-backed Chicago company that operates the website, has launched a trademark-infringement suit against Facebook on Thursday, claiming that the latter’s recently announced Timeline feature could “quite possibly eliminate” its entire business. is a website that basically allows people to record and share personal or historic events, and contribute descriptions, links, photos and videos related to those events, people, companies, bands etc.

The suit essentially claims that Facebook’s Timeline service has the potential to put Timelines Inc. straight out of business.

Timelines has its own page on Facebook. In its complaint, it alleges that the social networking giant is shifting visitors away from this page and redirecting them instead to Facebook’s own timeline page.

Neither Facebook or Timelines immediately returned requests for comment.
