Comment: Could YOU own Walmart.com ? NO.

(See in situ)


Could YOU own Walmart.com ? NO.

I was confused on this issue until this analogy occurred to me:

Copyright is about linking NAME with CONTENT.

Walmart - Name.
Cheap Products - Content.

Lord of the Rings - Name
Ancient Earth Plot Line - Content.

No one else can use the WALMART NAME and link it to - cheap products/services. Sam Walton already came up with that idea and his heirs own it.

No one else can use Lord of the Rings - and link it to fictional ancient civilizations plotlines.
But Porn Paradies, do not infringe ON THAT LINK.

Similarly,

Ron Paul - Name
Politics, Economy, etc. - Content.

No one else can use THAT name and draw links to THAT content. Ron Paul already came up with that idea and HE DESERVEDLY OWNS IT.

Case Closed.

So - RonPaul.com wants to be a fan site for Ron Paul - USE A DIFFERENT NAME !
F*ckers.
