You don't "own" a domain name

Technically, nobody "owns" a domain name. You are simply paying a registrar to control it so long as your renewal fees are paid.

By registering a domain you are agreeing to abide by the registrars code of conduct, one item of which is that you are not infringing on someone else's intellectual property. A person's name falls under this category. Under the dispute policy the parties are agreeing that a 3rd party will decide whether the current "owners" have the legal standing to "own" Which they don't... and shouldn't.

The current owners would have been much better off had they made an agreement with Ron Paul back when they registered the domain.
