Ron Paul files complaint against RonPaul.com and RonPaul.org - they were making money of his name and he is pissed!
Earlier today, Ron Paul filed an international UDRP complaint against RonPaul.com and RonPaul.org with WIPO, a global governing body that is an agency of the United Nations. The complaint calls on the agency to expropriate the two domain names from his supporters without compensation and hand them over to Ron Paul.

They tried to extort him too.

These folks registered this guy's name and started selling merchandise, which had exactly zero value except in conjunction with his name and fame.

Then they tried to sell him the domain and their mailing list which they compiled using his name and likeness without his consent for a whole ****load of money. $250,000, to be exact.

Offering to sell is not extortion...

And if Ron Paul is so big on capitalism, he should be honored that people take him seriously... and capitalize off of his own name to prove the theory works.

Wrong. RonPaul.com is no different that Pepsi.com. His name is a brand and case law proves that trying to sell a brand to the legitimate owner is illegal and extortion. It is a criminal offense in the USA.
