Facebook patented an online system against trademark violations

Facebook logo on screen

Facebook was recently granted the patent for an online system (e.g., social networking system) that allows searching and regulating trademark violations. The online system can receive proofs of trademark registration from trademark owners before proceeding to search and rank contents within the system that are possibly violating those registered trademarks through the support of machine learning. The system can then proceed to control the distribution of those contents (e.g., by blocking or blacklisting content providers) if there are any indications of trademark violations in them.
