Ron Paul Wants His Domain Name!

Ron Paul, former Representative and candidate for U.S. President, has filed a complaint with ICANN over ownership of the domain names ronpaul.com and ronpaul.org, currently owned by Ron Paul supporters. Dr. Paul says the current owners should give up the names because he has a common law trademark on his name. There is some dispute over whether the owners offered to sell Dr. Paul the names and if so, for what sum. More here from FoxNews, here from the Huffington Post.
