Company wins dispute over FacebookLive.com domain name
A National Arbitration Forum panelist has awarded Facebook the domain name FacebookLive.com.
The domain name was originally registered in 2006 but its whois record was protected by a proxy service. The whois proxy was lifted in 2009, revealing Domainstand.com LLC as the owner. After the dispute was filed the registrant’s name was changed to CT nice Homes LLC. The domain owner didn’t respond to Facebook’s allegations.
“Facebook Live” is the name of a live video streaming channel about Facebook. The Facebook Live page has 1,124 likes. If Facebook is on top of its domains it should start forwarding the domain to this page as soon as it is transferred.
This is the 13th dispute Facebook has filed under the uniform domain name dispute policy. It hasn’t lost yet.
