Defendant in Lanham Act lawsuit turns over dozens of domains to Facebook

Facebook, Inc. v. Cyber2Media, Inc. et al

Back in July, Facebook filed a lawsuit in United States District Court seeking the cancelling of typosquatter domains that infringed on its trademarks, as well as damages and other relief against a number of defendants.

In the case of Facebook, Inc. v. Cyber2Media, Inc. et al, Facebook alleged violations of the Lanham Act, which among other things, prohibits trademark infringement.

One of the defendants identified in the lawsuit (read here), Ryan Johnson of Minnesota, has now transferred nearly 75 domain names to Facebook.

The domain names were transferred to Facebook, Inc. this week. 

Here’s a look at the full list of domain names that Ryan Johnson handed over.

I’ve reached out to Ryan for comment and will update this story if I hear back.
