    I have a few questions, appreciate any feedback.

    for example. I have /nissan.

    1) What will the deal be if (when) Nissan wants it. Specifically, the trademarked companies and taking their domain back? Do I have any leverage? Will FB just delete my account all together? AM I stupid for grabbing it?

    what happens if Nissan Wants it.

    2) Will the minimums for FB Fan Page vanity url's (prior to May 31 2009) be changed?

    I have a few pages with close to 5,000 since June 1st.

    Thanks.

    1) yes nissan and other trademarks will be taken back by facebook if the trademark owner requests it (that's what facebook says anyway)

    2) i dunnno, facebook is getting a lot of angry comments about this so maybe

    Do you have any guess if they will give me the option to keep my account?

    Maybe building a huge site and then offering to sell it to "nissan" would be better to make any money.

    You have no leverage in keeping the account. Nissan is a trademarked name so you are out of luck when they request.

    What will they do to your account? I am not so sure but I would personally get rid of it before Facebook takes it back.
