    TomCruise.com UDRP

    It looks like Tom Cruise is finally going after the TomCruise.com domain name at WIPO:

    http://arbiter.wipo.int/domains/case...0400-0599.html
    http://arbiter.wipo.int/cgi-bin/doma...g&case_id=9040

    The Respondent is none other than Alberta Hot Rods, who we've discussed before, e.g.

    http://www.domainstate.com/showthrea...threadid=61546

    in relation to their upcoming JeffreyArcher.com UDRP, and their past famous wins and losses.

    I'll predict that this won't be a "Mission Impossible" for Tom, and that he'll be victorious in this battle.

    Interestingly, Trout & Zimmer has quietly acquired the .net for Tom:

    http://whois.domaintools.com/tomcruise.net

    Trout & Zimmer are renowned for getting domain names for top companies. For example, their WHOIS is in the history for "urge.com" (Silver membership required):

    http://domain-history.domaintools.co...ate=2005-10-04

    They still show up in the current WHOIS for vpro.org/biz/us:

    http://whois.domaintools.com/vpro.org
    http://whois.domaintools.com/vpro.biz
    http://whois.domaintools.com/vpro.us

    and are in the History for vpro.com:

    http://domain-history.domaintools.co...ate=2006-04-24

    Same story for LeapAhead.com's history:

    http://domain-history.domaintools.co...ate=2005-12-30

    When they come knocking, you know big $$$$ is behind them.

    Legend has it, that he didn't make All the Right Moves when he was one of the Young Guns, but now that he's seen The Color of Money, The Firm believer will fight like The Last Samurai to become Top Gun by taking on one of The Outsiders. It's a Risky Business, some might think he's Losin' It, but Don't Look at Me. Far and Away, the gossip of the Magnolia Cocktail bars Taps out that this isn't a tale of Endless Love; a decision by A Few Good Men should be Born on the Fourth of July, or possibly earlier - of course a Minority Report could result in Collateral damage. Let's just hope it doesn't Rain, Man, because we don't want any Days of Thunder to cloud over our Vanilla Sky.

    Or it might end up as a War of the Worlds?

    T & Z also acquired gbuy.com, and still have it in their name:

    http://whois.domaintools.com/gbuy.com

    They tried to buy a name from me last year, but I knew who they were, and didn't fall for their lowballs.

    I made them no counter-offer, as even they were embarrassed at the low level of their clients' offer.
