    http://www.paypalsucks.com/domain-name-disputes.shtml

    Many people have written regarding domain name issues and copyright/trademark law. This site is allowed to use the "paypalsucks.com" and "nopaypal.com" domains (and others) because it's free speech and there are exceptions to the trademark/copyright laws that allow for such use. (Satire, parody, criticism, news gathering & social commentary value, etc.)

    I think these guys made mistake when they made shirts for sale with his name. They would have been safe if they stayed not for profit.

    In my personal opinion, free speech or no free speech... That domain name “f*ckjimcornette.com” be transfered to to him. In addition to seeking damages excess of $75,000, as well as lawyer fees, and punitive damages.
    One's hatred or dissatisfaction for a particular product or service should never define the intention to register a name that infringe ones character, product, or idea. Besides, there are thousands of ways you can air out your views or dissatisfaction the right manner but registration of domain names in this tune should never be encouraged and as a professional community of domainers like ours, we namePros community say no to such. We are bold to speak out .

    As I said earlier, its my own opinion. Thanks

    NB: I have no affiliation or personal relationship with the person concerned. Perhaps after my comment, I will have to look him up on Google + Wikipedia. Should i even care ? Someone who doesn't know of my existence and probably be enjoying his $75,000+ in no distant time. Perhaps if such domain dispute wasn't posted here maybe or maybe not will I want to look him up.

    I am familiar with Jim Cornette. He is very famous in the wrestling world.

    I agree with Recons. You basically lose the free speech argument when it comes to commercial gains.

    How can anyone hate Jim Cornette? the man is a god. Its weird I was just binging on a lot of his shoots about a week ago. He was so entertaining when I was a kid, and he tells the best stories now.

    Just so you not get my intention wrong. As earlier stated... I didn't post that with the hope of a reply from anyone. To avoid much argument and defamatory comments, I have opted to delete the note...
    Perhaps it upset you... Sorry about that.

    Anyone involved in the pro wrestling world deserves to be mocked and ridiculed. Especially the audience that actually pays money to watch the pathetic garbage that it is.
