Facebook, the global social media giant, is preparing to file a lawsuit -- in a Bangladeshi court -- against a Bangladesh Telecommunications Company Limited (BTCL) owned domain called "facebook.com.bd".

Speaking to The Daily Star, Facebook-appointed Supreme Court lawyer Barrister Moksadul Islam said, "A Bangladeshi company, A1 Software Limited, had created a local domain called facebook.com.bd and put it up for sale for USD 60 million."

"We noticed this domain a few years back and have sent them multiple legal notices since then to shut the domain down, but it was not done," the lawyer continued.
