Facebook is a globally known brand, as witnessed by 3 billion accounts worldwide. The company founded by Mark Zuckerberg in his university dorm is worth billions of dollars.

It’s also a controversial social media platform, currently under pressure to change how it handles news, misinformation, and other elements of its addictive qualities. On Monday, Facebook faced a multi-hour downtime due to DNS changes. Its stock dropped on the same day, but climbed up on Tuesday.

Interesting. How long has the .ca been active? Is it yours? lol

Either way, I don't think they would win if they filed a CDRP... due to fair use (unless the respondent didn't bother filing a response, then maybe he/she would lose).

It's like all the [company]sucks.com cases, where complainant can't meet all three parts of the CDRP test/criteria (to be successful in their claim).

1) It may be seen as bad faith with the purpose of disrupting someone’s business; but 2) they arguably have a legitimate interest; and 3) it's not confusingly similar. They might be able to successfully argue a few parts of the test, but unlikely all 3.
