I posted the following reply in the other thread about this story in Industry News...
This is an absolute ridiculous story! The man is criminal minded.
I found it quite sad to view his website "1stunna.com" where he proudly displays news stories of his former exploits.
Someone needs to explain to the tribe that the domains he owns are horrible and they could use far better names for a web presence. They too were dumb to offer him anything at all...
Crazy, he should take the money and run before he loses it, nobody is gonna pay $500,000 for that loooong fugly domain.
"Howard Neu, a Broward lawyer specializing in Internet domain name cases, said he thinks Thiele's chances of winning any sort of legal case are slim because of copyright laws.".
I thought only text and images can be copyrighted, not actual domains ?
For sure..butt ugly.
Confusing copyright and trademarks is a common error. Either the lawyer or the journalist got it wrong.
$100,000 for crappy (cybersquatted) domains? That is an incredible good outcome for this jerk. He should have taken the money and run...
This might be a good one for them Miccosukee.us..
The guy turned down a 100k what a fool..
Thought so .. reporters seem to have a habit of talking crap when it comes to domains.
Does it mean that the owners of the Geo domains supposed to give up their names too?..
Also following is avaliable:.
Hmm.... maybe I should buy these and offer it to them for $100.000.
Idiot... saying no to $100.000 for such a crappy name. lol..
Looks like somebody read this thread and actually believed this dipstick was offered $100K regged Miccosukee .net, .org etc..
Native Americans have great lawyers. He should have taken the money and moved to a different state...
I really have trouble believing he was offered $100k for the names.....
You can maybe ask the Native American Indian party about it, though not sure if.
They're willing to reply and think they made a boo boo...
I just need to comment this one last time...
(yelling following sentence aloud...).
What An Idiot!.
The Worst Domainname Ever!!.
I can't believe anyone would want that domain, what is wrong with people!!!?.
Pweew... sorry... I just needed to get it out there..
It's good to see that we domainers have such a person in the news to typify usHas anyone around here got 20" biceps or was that an exaggeration too?..
Wow... just wow. freaking moron was offered $100k... (if he was really offered anything he was lucky)... now he is going to get sued and lose it. Great going! All over possibly the dumbest domain name ever...
I doubt he even got offered $5k for this one....
