Leno Wrests Back Control of Domain Name

Jul 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment

NBC’s Jay Leno gained control of Web domain name “ thejaylenoshow.com” from a Texan who used it to promote a real estate business, the Associated Press says.

The current owner failed to prove he had a legitimate reason for registering the address, according to the United Nation’s World Intellectual Property Organization, which ordered the name transferred to the comedian.

  1. Well, the guy who had the domain name was a jerk, but under what authority does the UN make such demands? I’m no lawyer, but if you could explain to me how an unelected, un-American, unaccountable body have such power, I’d be grateful.
