[All FB] Facebook Moves To Claim 21 Squatted Domains

Facebook has filed a claim on at least 21 web addresses currently held by known domain squatter, Domain Asset Holdings.

The 21 domains all include the “Facebook,†and 14 of them actually begin with the word.

All of them are listed for sale on DomainMarket, and some state their current prices — several are as low as $350, while the highest of the disclosed pricetags is $8,000 for AboutFacebook.com.

Wouldn't it be cheaper/faster/easier for Facebook to just buy them? I guess they're trying to not encourage this sort of thing.
