Trading Domain Names For A Day With The Candidates

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Michael Deutsch loves politics so much so that he systematically purchases Internet domain names that political campaigns might want. But it's not a get-rich-quick scheme. When the campaigns come knocking, asking to take over the domains, he bargains for face time with the candidates.

It infuriates me that the Department of Commerce using the Department of Justice, had the audacity to offer to "arbitrage" my company years ago because I registered "generic" domains and never registered a trademarked, owned or copyrighted domain name but Michael Deutsch gets to do worse with complete impunity.

He is basically cyber-squatting and extorting the owners. How is it that I was harassed for my true competition with NetworkSolutions and Deutsch is applauded with this lovely interview on NPR.
