Facebook Using Arbitration To Get Facebook.me Domain Name

Posted May 11, 2010

Facebook filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization to gain ownership of the Facebook.me domain name. Facebook.me is owned by a man in the U.A.E. The .me domain code is intended for businesses based in Montenegro.

Facebook isn’t the only major brand to push for a domain name using arbitration. Mapquest, American Express, and Porsche have used arbitration to get their hands on several domain names as well. [DomainNameWire]
