Presidential Domain Name Squatters Fail To Hit No Jackpot for this round of cybersquatting. grelmar
Google Link to New York Times Article [ google.com] shouldn't require registration this way
Interesting article. But it only covered those who didn't make anything off presidential name cyber-squatting. I wonder if its a sign surfers are becoming more savvy, or if its just a blip on the radar.
I guess factcheck.com doesn't count? skipfactor
This guy should have taken the 5 figure offer; it's still for sale, better than most names too. But if they win the election who knows?
Indiana bailbondsman kerry edwards...has received several five-figure offers for the domain name [kerryedwards.com], which he bought in March 2002

Judging by the hit counter on one of those guys sites, I think I'll stick to more conventional strategies the next time I have to choose a good domain name. Unless I decide to sell waffles. PatrickDeese
OTOH - they all just got links from the NYT site :) Webwork
Did somebody say 'sell waffles'? Boy, have I got a domain for you! Think Belgian Waffles ;-)
Heck, I own the name of Kerry & Edwards' political party so, whilst I care if they win, my little domain will still be relevant even if they don't win and I'll just recycle it.
In domains, as in elections, one has to choose wisely.
This poor Kerry Edwards guy - just by the luck of it, he shares their name, and gets repeatedly called a "cybersquatter"!
How uninformed and irresponsible of these reporters.
