From ZDnet: AA Not Awarded .org Site
Owners of the AlcoholicsAnonymous.org Web site have fended off a bid by the national organization to snatch the domain name, saved in part by a wide-ranging disclaimer on the front page.
I thought this was funny:
Alcoholics Anonymous had filed a claim with the WIPO board, which has the right to transfer domain names from one party to another, alleging the site’s owners were violating the organization’s trademark and using the site in bad faith. AA also accused the site’s owners, who used a fictitious name, of providing false information when registering the site.
The board, however, sided with the current owners Dec. 28, saying they posted adequate notification that the site was not affiliated with AA. Furthermore, the board noted, AA encourages anonymity and a decentralized structure.
