He’s King of His Domain, But All Aren’t The Same

January 5, 2009

by Terence Brennan

Q. I own the copyright to a name for a news and information Web site. I own the .net domain, but someone else — using my copyrighted name — owns the .com domain. The owner of the .com is not using his domain and simply has it “parked.”

I asked the Web-hosting service to negotiate a sale for me, but the owner said he was not interested in selling. I have considered either billing the current owner for use or demanding the release of the domain.

Do I have any recourse, and, if so, would it be very expensive?
