Facebook says real estate firm is cybersquatting on 30 domain names

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:

facebookbroker.com
facebookclothes.com
facebookcupid.com
facebookdating.net
facebookdirectbuy.com
facebookevites.com
facebookexchange.com
facebookexchange.net
facebookgreeting.com
facebookgreetings.com
facebookhub.com
facebookjukebox.com
facebooklayoutpimp.com
facebooklayoutpro.com
facebookmusicstore.com
facebookperfectmatch.com
facebookpoked.com
facebookpokers.com
facebookpoking.com
facebookpress.com
facebookringtones.net
facebookshop.net
facebooksingles.net
facebooksticker.com
facebookstickers.net
facebookstuff.net
facebookthreads.net
facebooktones.com
pimpmyfacebook.net
shopfacebook.net

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.
