Wallmartcanadasucks.com Goes On The Offensive

from the two-can-play-at-that-game dept

A few months back WIPO determined that Wal-Mart did not have the rights to the domain Wallmartcanadasucks.com. The guy who does own that domain is now going on the offensive against Wal-Mart. He’s asking them to hand over their domains which infringe on his company’s rights. Wal-Mart happens to own Wallmartcanadasucks.net, Wallmartcanadasucks.org, and Wallmartcanadasucks.ca. The guy makes a legitimate point in saying that Wal-Mart is basically cybersquatting on these properties, since they have no plans to develop them, while his company does have plans for such development. The Register article includes the whole text of the letter to Wal-Mart. It’s funny, but he might be pushing his luck a bit.
