@All : thanks for the answer

@Alexander Radionov : if i ask, i think the answer will be clear, "you cannot..", but i want to know the rule about it, if i buy the domain and got sued, is mydomain will be shutdown/terminate from somewhere?

@andy_s : hahaa thats funny.. but all the information about the company is hidden.

@Y!! : the first time i hear about it, Lamebook vs Facebook, and there is FaceTime from apple

i think i will just buy that domain, and see what happen when i got hit 1000 visit per day and that shoot to yahoo ears ;D


nb : 1000 visit? it's still a long way.. :D
