Presidential Candidate Ron Paul Uses the UN He Despised to Try Get Him Access to Ownership Rights Over “RonPaul.com”

CaptureFormer Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul wants the domain names “RonPaul.com” and “RonPaul.org” – but in the case of squatters and/or supporters; the usual rules go against using your legal name as the excuse for wanting ownership rights over a website domain that you should have registered or arbitrated yourself.

Ron Paul has raised an objection with the UN’s World Intellectual Property Organization asking the agency to grant him ownership of the domains.

In the case of sites like Facebook, Google, Twitter – multiple domain suffixes are purchased in advance to stop exploitation and financial blackmail but if, for example, an individual bought the domain name “Google.co.uk” before Google got the chance, then regardless of trademark: Companies such as ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) make it clear through their UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy) that it’s reasonably complex when it comes to a name. My name’s John A. Citizen– but I have no entitlements over cask.com if I go and trademark my name and demand ownership of JohnCitizen.com

"Ron Paul’s name and his associated Ron Paul mark have become synonymous with the Complainant and his books, articles, public appearances, and political commentary,""Ron Paul has no relationship with the Respondents and has not authorized the Respondents to use the Ron Paul name."

This move is certainly rich seeing as the United Nations is a global body that he himself protested against. If they’re flogging pictures of your name and face – then yeah, maybe you’re entitled to profits but when it comes to domain names: it’s best to figure out how the system works before you pull the big regulation boys into it.

Related or not: Domain squatting is something that happens. He was known in 2008 when the domains were registered and therefore you snooze, you lose!
