This has NOTHING to do with firearms or anything like that, but it's still something that I thought would be worth mentioning, and maybe getting people here after it. There is an individual here in Austin, Texas named Chip Rosenthal. In Feb. 1990, he registered a domain name: unicom.com. This was before the World Wide Web even EXISTED in the U.S. Now, a company in Kalifornia is trying to get him to surrender the domain name, under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. This guy is an independent consultant and pretty small next to Unicom Systems, Inc. He also registered the domain name a full seven years before Unicom Systems, Inc. registered their own name: unicomsi.com, and also seven years before Unicom Systems, Inc. trademarked their logo of a stylized version of the name "Unicom."
This is pretty sheitty, as far as I'm concerned. This guy isn't "cybersquatting" so to speak. He didn't go out and buy, say, microsoft.com before Microsoft did, for the reason of making Microsoft purchase it for a horribly high fee. Unicom Systems, Inc. is, as far as I and a lot of other people are concerned, just trying to push a little guy into doing something that he shouldn't have to do. Check out the site:
[url]http://www.unicom.com[/url] and you can read more about this. He'll take donations via PayPal. If you can help (in ANY way, not just monetarily) great, if you can't, that's fine too. Just wanted to bring this up. Thanks for the time.
(edited to ask for a tack, maybe?)
