Sir Richard Branson Wins Rights to x x x Domain Name [bbc.co.uk]
Sir Richard Branson has won control of the domain name richardbranson.x x x.

The tycoon had been in dispute with Australian Sean Truman, who registered the domain name last year.

The National Arbitration Forum (NAF), a US-based adjudication body, ruled that Mr Truman had registered and used richardbranson.x x x "in bad faith".
