Copyright question

    I plan on creating a site related to facebook. I know that it is copyright infringement to include "facebook" in the actual domain name, but would it be copyright infringement to include "FB" in the name (i.e. fb-stuff.com)?

    copyright issues are based on faith and not exact match. I'm sure fb will fall into the same category so my opinion will be yes it is a copyright infringement and especially that now facebook owns fb.com anyway.

    Good luck

    Alright thanks, any other opinions? It is going to be tough to make a site so entirely dedicated to facebook but without any indication of it in the domain name :(

    well in my opinion if you use this domain fb-stuff.com i dont think there is going to be any problem using this domain.

    facebook has been suing people using their name in the domain, so its better not to use it unless you have a lawyer on retainer lol
