Typosquatting is one of the most nefarious forms of cybersquatting. Companies continue to struggle with the sheer volume of domain names registered by cybersquatters which incorporate all or part of their registered trademarks. Facebook, which has not been particularly aggressive when it comes to protecting its online brand, just stepped it up a big notch.
Facebook, Inc. has sued 23 defendants plus John Does 1-119 for cybersquatting, contributory cybersquatting, trademark infringement, contributory trademark infringement, false designation of origin and contributory false designation, trademark dilution and contributory trademark dilution, breach of contract and tortuous interference with economic advantage.
The complaint can be found below. Separately, we are posting Exhibit A which is the list of typo domain names which, by virtually any standard, clearly incorporate the Facebook trademark.
