Ron Paul’s message lives on!
In a case of Ron Paul v. RonPaul.com, the owners and operators of the two websites bearing his name claim that they offered to give RonPaul.org to Ron Paul as a gift– an estimated value of $250,000! and they would continue to own and operate RonPaul.com, as a sort of self-mutilating quid pro quo.
Oh, sure. Just give him RonPaul.Org. That should be useful four years ago. If it’s so great, why are they using RonPaul.com to state their case?
So, evidently, Ron Paul sees this as an affront to liberty and property rights, and Ron Paul wants it all. According to his tens of dozens of shocked and disheartened followers, they posted on the website in question:
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.
Ideologically speaking, this is like Jesus going to the Devil to sue the Apostles for using “Jesus” to spread his word.
In a page survey titled, ”What Should Ron Paul Do Now?” they ponder the questions of their lives:
1) Withdraw his legal action and privately work out a solution with his supporters.
2) Send his supporters off to a UN tribunal and try to seize RonPaul.com through government force.
3) He’s probably not even aware of this dispute; he should get involved and do what he thinks is right
Personally, I’d go with, “Send his supporters off to a UN tribunal and try to seize RonPaul.com through government force.” It’s just more fun.
