Facebook Bought The Domain Name FB.com

Posted Nov 13, 2010

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]
