I just posted this at the PlaceBook blog:
Can’t talk now. We’re getting ready for a party.
I hear a sigh from California Avenue…
Congrats on the new name, and on the new direction!
Oh! The Places You’ll Go!
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
~ Dr. Seuss

Usually I do not post on blogs, but I want to say that this article quite forced me to try and do so! Thanks, quite nice article.
I disagree with this action by Facebook; I think it’s a heavy-handed mis-use of trademark law. At a quick glance, there’s no real possibility of confusion between the sites.
I also think this is a class example of acting in bad faith, and abusing power. I understand that you’re a small player and don’t necessarily want to waste your time opposing things like this, but I do want to say that this sort of thing makes me feel more wary of Facebook, and less favorable about Facebook as a company.
