    Her foundation uses LeanIn.org.

    Sheryl Sandberg’s foundation lost a cybersquatting complaint against the domain LeanIn.com.


    The Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation has lost a cybersquatting claim it filed against the domain name LeanIn.com. The organization filed the case with World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.

    The Facebook Chief Operating Officer is well-known for her TED Talk and book called Lean In. Her foundation has a subsidiary called LeanIn.Org LLC.

    The domain owner, Hecham Ghazal, had a business called LeanIn Inc. that acquired the domain name in July 2010. This was after Sandberg registered the domain name LeanIn.org but before her TED talk and before the book was published.
