    Is there a tangible or virtual thing that goes by the name of metaverse, or is it just a predicted future mode for posting selfies, playing games or arguing about politics? And does it require a philosopher-king to rule it and collect ad revenue?

    And if this is honest apparently he also doesn't respect other people/company's IP more generally.

    Facebook Stole Our Name and Livelihood

    Hello, World!

    We are Meta Company.

    Original Flavor. 😊

    For the last three months, Facebook lawyers have been hounding us to sell our name to them. We refused their offer on multiple bases. Namely, the low offer wouldn稚 cover the costs of changing our name, and we insisted on knowing the client and intent, which they did not want to disclose.

    At least two law firms were involved: One in the USA that requested our trademark and domains (Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton), and the other in Europe aggressively contacting trying to get us to sell our domain registrations (Hogan Lovells).

    On October 20th, 2021, during a phone call with Facebook attorneys, we declined their low offer and maintained our requirements. At this point, we presumed it was Facebook and identified them on the call. The attorney representing Facebook declared they would respect our existing right and registration.

    On October 28th, 2021, Facebook decided to commit trademark infringement and call themselves 溺eta.

    They couldn稚 buy us, so they tried to bury us by force of media. We shouldn't be surprised by these actions from a company that continually says one thing and does another. Facebook and its operating officers are deceitful and acting in bad faith, not only towards us, but to all of humanity.

    It's unfortunate to have been associated with a company so rooted in controversy and fixated on domination. We aim to be distinguished from Facebook's totalitarian view of the future. We hope the negative association with Facebook and its founder will be forgotten but we won't ignore the damages done.

    We have proceeded to file the necessary legal actions. This message may be regarded as a public cease and desist. We welcome your support.

    One more thing: Our new product launch just got delayed because of Facebook. We must deal with these matters. In the coming weeks, we will make an announcement earlier than we expected. We promise it will be good. Stay tuned.



    Thank You.

    Sincerely,
    Nate Skulic
    Founder, MetaCompany
