has become a worldwide social, cultural and political phenomenon. With fame
comes imitation. Here, Defendant Teachbook.com LLC rides on the coattails of
the fame and enormous goodwill of the FACEBOOK trademark. Misappropriating the

protect its user community and the strength of the famous FACEBOOK trademark
through this action.
