    [Blog] Facebook Recovers Typo Domain Names
    As you might recall, if you are a regular reader of my blog, I previously reported about Facebook suing a group of domain name cyber squatters , people who owned typos of the Facebook.com domain name. Most likely a result of Facebook having sued a whole lot of cyber-squatters recently, Facebook has recovered 44 domain names that are typos of the Facebook brand. If you look at the new owner of these domains, they are owned by Facebook: Registrant: Domain Administrator. Facebook, Inc. 1601 S.
