Facebook says real estate firm is cybersquatting on 30 domain names
Monday, July 2nd, 2012
30 domains include “facebook” in them.
Facebook has filed a cybersquatting complaint against a San Diego area realty company, claiming that the company is cybersquatting on its famous mark.
The complaint with National Arbitration Forum lists thirty total domain names that include the Facebook name andrew are registered to Pellegrino Realty in La Mesa, California:
I spot checked a handful of these domains and it appears that Pellegrino registered many of these domains in 2007. It’s kind of surprising Facebook is just getting around to filing a UDRP on them.
The sites don’t appear to have been used for anything, although some of the domains had brief stints as domain parking pages.
