Will Facebook once again make a buzz?

Saturday, June 13th starting at 06:01am, Facebook users will be able to choose a username to customize their profile URL. Something like http://www.facebook.com/username/. After DNS cybersquatting, will we see a new effect of Facebook cybersquatting?

There is already a FAQ available about this new feature and Facebook also put a form online to help trademarks owners to reserve their usernames. But what about trademarks not reserved? They announce the possibility to start a procedure to recover the squatted username but how much time will it take? What will be their helpdesk load increase? I’m curious!
