As reported by Kommersant daily on September 4th, Facebook is asking CFT Group, russian software development group to stop using domain name Facebook.ru and hand it over to Facebook Inc via cease and desist letter from August 28th. Since recent facebook.ru has been forwarding users to russian payment system Zolotaya Korona official website which was a point to its owner, as Zolotaya Korona system is developed by CFT Group. CFT Group is demanded to give up the domain name and trademark by September 30th. Remarkable fact is Facebook.ru was acquired by CFT Group in 2005 and Facebook.com appeared in Russia in 2008. As of today Sep 5th no official reply has been sent to Facebook Inc by CFT Group. Facebook.ru is still forwarding to Zolotaya Korona.
