    She also has a “Domain names as dot-commentary” report on her MSNBC.com page today…

    Rachel Maddow is right; someone purposely registered a celebrity’s full name and squatted on it.

    It’s not like it’s “John Smith” or any other common name.

    Just the kind of “domainer” that gives the rest of us a bad name.

      I agree Andrea, it is behavior like this that gives legitimate domain investors a bad name and gives the word Cybersquatting legs…

      What I found so interesting was some of the stuff she said besides that, a real good look into public perception at the moment, things like:

      you go to the obvious place to get that information, you go to BruceSpringsteen.com” – So the obvious place you go when looking for something is a .com

      the Official Bruce Springsteen Website is Dot Net, not BruceSpringsteen.com, but rather Dot Net, which makes you feel like your talking on a flip phone in the 1990′s when you type it in” – LOL, poor Dot Net, and I like she said “type it in”

  3. Hello Mark,

    We do not suggest anyone legally register a name in this way. There is a lesson to be learned about the publics attitude towards the .COM Franchise Addresses preferred Brand though.

    R. E. = ” and now the Official Bruce Springsteen Website is Dot Net, not BruceSpringsteen.com, but rather Dot Net, which makes you feel like your talking on a flip phone in the 1990′s when you type it in. ”

    Rachael Maddow remains very bitter that I beat Obama and his group Organizing For Action dot net in a UDRP. We won the UDRP and Maddow went Madcow since.

      Wow Adam, that is crazy. I wonder why they wanted a name that “makes you feel like your talking on a flip phone in the 1990′s” so bad, lol…
