Korean registrant the next target of a Facebook UDRP ?

A #zuck hashtag.

A rather naive Korean registrant, got whiff of the upcoming – at the time – plan that Facebook had, to implement hashtags.

The idea of adding the “hash” (#) to keywords, in order to produce linkable search results, was pioneered by Twitter.

Now that Facebook has jumped on the hashtag bandwagon, anyone can accompany their duck face photos with a #duckface hashtag on Facebook, thus linking to thousands of similar results.

Isn’t technology grand?

Back to the Korean guy; he registered FacebookHashtag.com and FacebookHashtags.com in March, according to DomainTools.

How do you say “clueless” in Korean?

Both of these domains resolve to a basic page, adorned by flowers and providing the email address of the registrant. It’s an obvious attempt to make the domains available for sale, without as much as saying anything. 😉

Facebook has been particularly aggressive in retrieving domain names that contain its trademark, so we expect this pair of domain names to evaporate in an upcoming UDRP.

#TGIF !
