No. Its a typo of a keyword and not someone's brand name. I don't think you will get very far on it in terms of type ins unless its a very commonly searched term. If you want a typo as your brand, then that's very web 2.0 of you but probably not the best idea.

"Google" is a typo of the word "Googol". What about Flickr? So not a problem, unless you are trying to pass yourself off as the non-typo site then you are in bad territory.
But avoid the "del.icio.us" subdomain or fancy-domain-ending varieties, it was a fad but isn't a long-term strategy - Yahoo ended up having to buy delicious.com for a huge pile of money, which proves the point.
