Running a fan site is fine?

Well, that is what it says at the top of "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 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.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
