Timelines.com and Facebook said in federal court that they were still discussing a potential settlement, according to paidContent.
An early settlement conference with a magistrate judge may bring the matter to an end.
The two parties were in court to file their schedules for the legal proceedings, according to paidContent.
The smaller company filed a trademark suit in September, claiming that Facebook’s use of the word “timeline” for the new profile would cripple Timelines.com’s online scrapbook service.
Facebook filed a countersuit in December, asserting that timeline is a generic term.
