It was just a few weeks ago that Facebook filed a massive Cybersquatting lawsuit against 25 named companies and individuals & over 100 “john Doe’s” for $100K for each domain name and damages and all the money generated by the typo’s.
So yesterday I was pretty surprised to see another typo Facebopok.com sell on SnapNames.com on an expired domain name auction for $1,999.
There were actually 5 people battling it out from $1k+, with the lucky winner having the handle of “latarioni”.
The domain itself probably gets according to the Alexa.com and Compete.com under 1,000 visitors a month.
Why anyone would risk a lawsuit which can cost hundreds of thousands including attorney’s fees is well beyond me.
I notice some other Facebook typo’s all dropping within the same few days so this may not be the last one we see.
