Running a fan site is fine?

Well, that is what it says at the top of RonPaul.com: "A fan site"

However, running a fan site then trying to sell the domain to the famous person is not.

According to this article, they don't want to sell it - they never did. There is a lot of half truths and shallow thinking floating around this whole story. I've spoken with my lawyer about it - the IP lawyer who helped defend me against Righthaven. He says the folks at RonPaul.com have a decent shot at keeping the domain, if they make the right arguments.

Much of that is covered in this article at Techdirt, which was a great source for me during the Righthaven days. This article is a lot more informative than 90% of the chatter going on here on the DP.
