    Hey, i wanna get a domain that has something to do with the big face..

    its just.. if i use facebook in the domain title they will probably steal the domain from me in a sec..

    and to put "fb" in your domain instead of facebook sounds stupid

    anyone got an idea and help me? :)

    I think that in long-run you will not be able to use face or book, it is in process of branding by facebook

    I hope you are joking...anyone can use the word face or book in anything they want to. Facebook can't take away a domain if you have the word face in it.

    simple. dont use trademarks in your domain names. The company can either take it from you, or sue you. My brother got sued by microsoft for $50k/domain name that he was using one of their product names in... he had over 1,000 domains. Needless to say, he lost all the domains and a large amount of money. (lucky for him, he had already made much more than what he had to pay off of the domains.)
