Facebook custom username feature takes effect June 13; Trademark owners may register to prevent trademarks from being used as usernames

Beginning Saturday, June 13, 2009, the Facebook social networking site will allow its members to create customized URLs for their Facebook home pages (e.g., www.facebook.com/username).

Trademark owners may register their trademarks with Facebook to prevent the marks from being used in custom usernames.  To register your trademarks, Facebook’s registration form is available here.  For more information, Facebook’s FAQ site is available here.
