The anti cyber squatting act

The anti cyber squatting act of 1999 made doing this illegal.

They are no doubt profiting off of Ron Paul's personal brand, trademark & good name.

I wonder, did they get Ron Paul's permission to sell gear with his name on it? Are they paying Ron Paul licensing fees just the way any other trademark holder is paid when their name/image is used on products? Probably not.

They can no longer claim that RonPaul.com is not about Ron Paul, because they have used it as such for 5 years now. That inextricably ties RonPaul.com to Ron Paul. They cannot reasonable argue that they have any legitimate use for owning RonPaul.com beyond running it as a fan site... and they lost that argument when they tried to sell it to Ron Paul.
