You can't own Walmart.com

You can't own Walmart.com because Walmart purchased that domain. Also, if someone had acquired it before Walmart, Walmart would have a legitimate claim to it based on existing copyrights that Walmart owns. This is the law and this is what happened when someone bought McDonalds.com. This same rule doesn't apply to human names unless they are used in part of a business, for example "Tommy Hilfiger".
