    Great interview, Stephan. Thank you for speaking out on this. You are, of course, 100% correct. Ron Paul should either put up the bucks or devise another domain name. Totally hypocritical and very disappointing.

    Thank you, Stephan (and Adam).

    You know, I just thought of something. See if you can spot an analogy within the following paraphrased dialog:

    “Gives it to usssss.”
    “Because we wants it. It is precious to ussss.”

    Apparently, that’s all the reasoning anyone ever needs.

    Me again, thread hog. Apparently (according to one of Wendy McElroy’s sources), WIPO rejected Ron Paul’s claim.

    I have a question, Stephan. If someone trademarked the term “Ron Paul,” would that in any way give them a claim on the http string “ronpaul.com?” The differences seem obvious to me, but I’d bet that there’s some precedent out there somewhere. Perhaps the WIPO rejection of Ron Paul’s claim sets some kind of quasi-legal bureucratic precedent?

    Ignorant and wondering…

      Uh, “bureaucratic,” that is. Typing not good me at…
