    Am planning on creating a fan page and get the facebook vanity url before local organisations/companies can do so that i flip them at some time.
    Do you think i will get into serious copyright /trademark issues?

    Well, did you know that the Facebook page for Coca Cola started as a third party fan page? It was not endorsed by coke in any way. It got so popular, the company actually endorsed it, and that was that.

    So in short, no I don't think it's a problem.
