If RP owns the trademark...

...he would have the right to prohibit others from using it - that's the essence of intellectual property. Since the trademark and the domain name are inseparable (i.e. you can't use the latter without using the former), anyone who owns the domain name other than Ron Paul would necessarily be violating RP's trademark, and therefore no one other than RP has a right to own the domain name.

RP is perfectly within his rights, *IF* you believe in intellectual property (I don't). But to criticize Ron Paul for this action while upholding intellectual property in principle would be hypocrisy.
