Facebook has just won two domain names via WIPO.
One which really is obvious FacebookGhana.com. What were they thinking when they bought that domain name!

However, the second domain appears to be just a typo domain - Fracebook.com and while the report says that Above.com owned the domain name, it actually appears that the domain name was registered at Above.com however it is owned by someone else.

Here is a small excerpt from the UDRP :

Facebook filed its complaint on 6 July, holding that the disputed domain was both confusingly similar to its trademark. It also argued that the domain redirects users to a website hosting a survey about Facebook offering users €50 to the “winner”.

Facebook claimed that the domain was being used in bad faith and Above.com “must have been aware of the Facebook brand”.

Sole panellist Andrea Jaeger-Lenz transferred the domain to Facebook after finding the name was being used in bad faith and Above.com was “undoubtedly receiving financial gain from the redirect and display of advertisements”.

The report has been sourced from RobbieBlog
