Mercedesshop loses domain name

Quote:
MercedesShop will be changing its domain name

This change is the result of a WIPO UDRP domain name dispute between Daimler AG and MercedesShop. The dispute is now resolved and we are changing our name.
I recall years ago, those folks dropped a bundle in court costs defending their ownership of that name.

This stuff is completely absurd. A while back, a longtime VW resource was forced by VAG to change its name from www . volkscafe . com to www . vancafe . com -- silly

I thought this site was named after the black servant on the rice box.

Garage
The Ranger Station, where I sometimes retreat to discuss the finer points of small Ford truck ownership, just came through a similar battle but not in court. Seems that Ford was convinced that the site actually engendered feelings of goodwill towards the undersized utility vehicle and backed down from their original stance.

I never saw Marsy there, though. Very right wingish.
