Facebook may take away the disputed page on Facebook from both Merck in Germany and Merck in the U.S., if the two companies do not come to an agreement, a person familiar with the situation said Monday.
The page Facebook.com/Merck was not accessible by late Monday, and the Merck U.S. page had moved to another location on the social network.
Germany's Merck KGaA threatened legal action after it said it lost its Facebook page apparently to rival Merck & Co. in the U.S.
Facebook on Monday apologized for what it described as an "administrative error".
