Possible Trademark Dispute Concerning Facebook's Paper AppIs Facebook looking at a possible trademark battle with the release of their new “Paper” app?

Georg Petschnigg, CEO of the company that created “Paper by FiftyThree”, has something to say about this:

“…It came as a surprise when we learned on January 30th with everyone else that Facebook was announcing an app with the same name—Paper. Not only were we confused but so were our customers…We reached out to Facebook about the confusion their app was creating, and they apologized for not contacting us sooner. But an earnest apology should come with a remedy…An app about stories shouldn’t start with someone else’s story. Facebook should stop using our brand name.”

Is it possible Facebook will give in and change the name of their app?
