Waiting to see a whole bunch of Meta domains to drop in Dec 2022. Lol
 
My prediction.... are you ready?


Zuckerberg will resign from facebook and remain ceo of META.

This way he can put someone else in charge of their biggest problem and he can wash his hands of it and focus on other projects.

Also if somehow facebook is sued into oblivion the other companies will still be running.

I'm wondering if there "could" be any potential TM issues for meta related domains registered on October 28th, 2021, onward.

Meta is definitely not nearly as distinct as Facebook, but it's still not a company you want to mess with.

the metaverse goes way beyond just Facebook, so it will be a big trend regardless of what they do.

I agree, and they can't stop everyone from including the word meta within their business name, but they may have an argument against some domains held by investors (eventually)... And there will always be some questionable ones too:

Not saying that's a slam dunk either, and it was registered prior to the official announcement, but it's at least questionable. FB will also probably be trademarking a ton of "meta+keyword" words too eventually, if they haven't already.
 
I would say they'd have a hard time going after meta domains for tm infringement, unless there was some obvious bad faith or misuse going on.

meta.ca doesn't resolve because it's being used as meta.bc.ca

Motorsport Emergency & Turnworkers Association

meta.bc.ca is registered since October 2000!

So they could actually go ahead and 'create' meta.ca as they have control over that term in .ca

Well I missed that thread, these are probably my favorite kind of domain stories, where a domain gets registered and becomes valuable in the future for some completely unforeseen reason, like Crypto.com
 
So if you owned Meta.ca and Facebook came inquiring for it, how much would you ask? How much do you think they would pay?

Facebook market cap is 900B US$, or about 1.125 Trillion Canadian $, for some perspective.
 
1 million seems like a nice round number but I could see higher all things considered.

Meta.io is interesting, looks like they got their site going just in time and are using Meta as their company name. That domain apparently sold for $100k US back in March. Wonder if the seller feels a little regret now?

Also back in March metaverse.io sold for $175k.

That seems pretty crazy. No one calls google alphabet, so I'm guessing meta will also just be a parent/holding company for all their other projects - its the individual projects that will be important to trademark.

I'm glad someone finally said it, I have been thinking about it and I feel a lot of people that spent big time on meta names might come to regret spending that much cash.

That said... any domainer that made money from it... Great Job *THUMBSUP*
 
Hard to say but I think we will see Metaverse related everything more and more in the future in ways we don't even know yet, which should help keep or increase some value to the term. Metaverse was already a thing before Facebook, as shown by those domain sales earlier in the year. Facebook has brought the idea more to the mainstream by explicitly calling themselves a metaverse company.
