Chinese Companies Sued for Trademark Infringement by Facebook

March 8,2019:

The social media giant, Facebook, is taking legal action against six websites operated by Xiu Network Science and Technology Company, Xiu Feishu Science and Technology Company, Xiufei Book Technology Co., and Home Network Technology Co., Ltd. for selling fake Facebook and Instagram accounts. These companies are also into online advertising and manufacturing of electronic products.

The fake account business is on a rise today, because the demand for having more followers and likes on photographs is a thing people care so much about. This is done to increase the number of followers on social media and this helps to attract real people to follow them on social media.

The lawsuit was filed with the Northern District of California, states that in 2017 four Chinese companies and three individuals based in China “operated a series of websites promoting the sale of fake accounts (e.g. using fake names or other false identifiers) and inauthentic accounts (e.g. used for inauthentic activity),” infringing Trademarks and terms of service of Facebook as well as Instagram.

Coming across a Trademark infringement is certainly nothing new for Facebook, so our guess is that the activity must have been on a fairly large scale to attract Facebook’s legal action.

The social media giant is seeking $100,000 in damages from each of the six websites it lists in the complaint for Trademark infringement, terms of service violations and cyber squatting domains using its name. These websites are still very much online and operational at the time of filing the lawsuit.

Notes from lawsuit filed by Facebook states, “According to their websites, these Defendant engage in the registration and sale of accounts, in bulk, for various social networking sites.”

When looked into one of the websites, 9xiufacebook.com, it was found that most people discovered it through a Chinese web search for “Facebook account purchase.”
