Legal Issues Bloggers Must Understand Trademarks are issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office and are used to protect intellectual property in commerce. For example, company names, product names, brand names, and logos are usually trademarked to ensure competitors in the same industry don't use the same names or logos, which could confuse and mislead consumers. Business communications typically use the copyright registration symbol (©) or the Service Mark or Trademark symbol (a superscript 'SM' or 'TM') following the trademarked name or logo the first time of that name or logo is mentioned. When other companies refer to competitors or other brands in their business communications, they are expected to include the appropriate copyright symbol (depending on the status of the trademark owner's trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office) as well as a disclaimer stating that the name or symbol is a registered trademark of that company.

This will not affect pages that use distinct images for their profile picture and cover photo, but pages that incorporate the profile picture into the cover photo — as seen in the example below — should be aware that the change could affect their designs. Pages’ profile pictures will now be presented as the same size as users’ profile photos. Previously, pages’ profile pictures appeared as 125×125 pixels, though some pages noticed Facebook testing the new size earlier this month.
