Facebook Bought The Domain Name FB.com

Facebook bought the domain name FB.com. The WHOIS record for the domain name showed Facebook. Facebook is also currently in the midst of a trademark dispute with the American Farm Bureau over the term FB. The American Farm Bureau sold the domain name to a third party, but may not have realized that eventually it would not end up in the hands of Facebook. As a matter of fact, Facebook and the American Farm Bureau’s dispute is still showing up as unresolved at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. [Domain Name Wire]
