Really? "because the buyer doesn't like their asking price", so would you like to be charged almost a million dollars for a $10 domain name?
And what if they own and use it illegally? Are you still on their side?
- Their business is not known as "Ron Paul", only Ron Paul (or others with the same name) are known as Ron Paul.
- They purport to only being a "fan site", but clearly they aren't using it for non-commercial purposes. A quick visit to the site and you'll obviously see they are selling merchandise.
- Attempting to sell ronpaul.com to ron paul for $850,000 represents an 85,000% markup! This is called cybersquatting.
"Cybersquatting (also known as domain squatting), according to the United States federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, is registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else."
- They purposely created confusion amongst visitors by using the "Ron Paul" trademark, suggesting a relationship between them and Ron Paul. They didn't even bother to add the words "fan site" until August of 2010.
