I have a website where one section of website has top menu links in this manner

<li><a href=../memes/index.php>MEMES</a></li>
<li><a href=../facebook/index.php>FB</a></li>
<li><a class=active href=../twitter/index.php>TWITTER</a></li>
<li><a href=../youtube/index.php>YOUTUBE</a></li>
<li><a href=../quora/index.php>QUORA</a></li>
<li><a href=../people/index.php>PEOPLE</a></li>

Can it be problem problem with trademark or copyright?


It's absolutely fine to use trademarked terms on your website providing you cannot be perceived as passing yourself off as that company...

Simply linking to websites using the brand name as the anchor is certainly no cause for concern.

    I am not actually linking to the sites. When a user clicks on let's say Facebook , he visits a page on my own site but it has content related to Facebook. Jan 28 '15 at 13:59
  • Yes, that is also fine. Providing you aren't making out to your audience that they are on Facebook, there is no issue.

You may add links on your site to your Facebook profile, YouTube page, etc. In that case, this is not a problem of copyright. You may add them if you want to.
