Here’s an interesting story with a couple of twists and turns, and I think you’ll find it interesting.
In the middle of April, Mike Berkens reported that “Facebook filed suit against FriendFinder and its subsidiaries over it’s site FacebookOfSex.com, claiming it’s too similar to its own trademarked name.” Obviously, Facebook was opposed to the usage of the “Facebook” branding in a non-Facebook owned or endorsed website. At the present time, that site appears to be deactivated.
FriendFinder also apparently has issues with Facebook’s usage of the term “friend finder.” They believe this infringes on their own brand. This is going to be an interesting legal fight.
Now here’s where things become more interesting to me. From my research, it appears that FriendFinder has acquired BookOFSex.com. The domain name is currently registered to someone with an @FFN.com email address, and FFN.com is owned by FriendFinder Networks. IMO, this is a pretty strong domain name.
Coincidentally, the domain name was sold by Mike Berkens’ Most Wanted Domains.
