I'm referring to the Claim. Part of Ron Paul's case against them, he claims, is that the registrants intentionally deceived people into thinking RonPaul.com is Ron Paul owned. It's a lie, as they don't do that.
They didn't try to profit off him. They purchased the site in May 2008. Dr. Paul never owned it. It was sold by another guy named Ron Paul who didn't do anything with it. A bunch of Ron Paul supporters bid on it. The guy(s) who owns it now apparently paid $25k for it on Ebay (credit given to the guy below me who found the info). They purchased it so that they could promote the Ron Paul 2008 Campaign and Ron Paul. That's exactly what they've been doing for 5 years, nonstop. Campaigning for Ron Paul. The merchandise came later as something to help them finance their activism while supporting him.
Why didn't he say anything sooner if he wanted it? In fact, why didn't he go to them with an offer or counter-offer before going to the UN? Not cool. Not cool at all.
