    Defendants hand domain names over to Facebook.

    Facebook has recovered 14 Facebook.com domain name typos that were named in its massive cybersquatting lawsuit filed in July.

    The domain names were most recently using the PrivacyProtect.org whois masking service.

    The names transferred to Facebook include:

    acebook.com
    facdbook.com
    facdebook.com
    facebokok.com
    facebooc.com
    faceboock.com
    faceboof.com
    facebooi.com
    facebool.com
    faceboook.com
    faceboow.com
    facfacebook.com
    facfebook.com
    wwwfacebok.com

    These aren’t the first domains from the lawsuit the social network has recovered. It recently recovered facebcook.com and one or two other domains.

    [Update 10/7/11: Facebook recovered another couple dozen domains today]

    It’s unknown if the defendants that owned these domains agreed to pay a settlement in addition to transferring the domain names.
