I find it odd that he would take this route. A quick Google search on "Ron Paul domain dispute" turns up a bunch of articles, and it will likely only grow.
Not to mention this thread, the 42 page thread on RPF, and on EPJ.
Suffice it to say that from a purely rational, economic standpoint, I think he's costing himself far more than $250K in terms of lost goodwill and respect among his supporters.
His main image selling point was that he's principled, and that he lives by those principles. Now by appealing to force - to the UN no less - he takes all of those years of "words" and with a single action, throws it all away.
Everyone I've talked to thinks it is sucky on Ron Paul's part.
Strictly from a PR standpoint, it is not a wise move.
The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
