FaceBook won the FaceBook.me Domain

Facebook won the domain Facebook.me from a United Arab Emirates-based Amjad Abbas and now this domain is already pointing users to Facebook.com.

This domain was registered by  Amjad Abbas of the United Arab Emirates during a 2008 .me-TLD land grab for $5,115.  This man also own  oracle.me, trump.me and other domains that may likely be illegal and unethical for him to own.

A World Intellectual Property Forum panelist wrote in a domain dispute decision that,

although Abbas claimed to have bought the domain and others to impress his friends, this claim was implausible and Abbas actually made this registration in bad faith in order to turn a significant profit by selling the domain to Facebook.

Now the domain is won by Facebook without any money.
