Ron Paul Wants His Domain Back

Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul wants his domain back

Gawker and Mediaite.com are covering this battle for RonPaul.com, from the Mediaite article:The group behind the sites announced Friday that Paul had filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization, “a global governing body that is an agency of the United Nations” to “expropriate the two domain names from his supporters without compensation.”

The creators of the site said, ” we put our lives on hold and invested 5 years of hard work into Ron Paul, RonPaul.com and Ron Paul 2012.” His presidential campaign fell short, but the enthusiasm lived on as supporters continued to rally around this free enterprise Messiah.”

Apparently the owners offered Ron Paul the .org as a gift if they could keep the .com. Ron Paul did not accept that proposal. When he rejected that offer, they proposed to sell Paul both domains along with the 170,000 person email list for $250,000, an offer he also rejected.
