.com Names Abused or Misused

These are names that have been registered by others to use for their own gain or to abuse in one way or another.

Some of these names are used for ppc (pay per click) advertising, some are used for adult websites, some are simply held in hopes of getting money for them. The names are not active links because in many cases, it's best if you DO NOT go to those sites. If you want to go to them, you will have to do so manually.

This is only a sample of names that are registered for the wrong reasons. If it wasn't for domains like these being abused or misused, I wouldn't be registering names either. If a celebrity name is being misused, they can take it to court, but the procedure can be long and costly and there have been many cases where the celebrity just let it be due to the cost and hassle. Names I register are given to the rightful owner at no cost and with no hassle if they want it. My only requirement is, if they want the registration transferred away from my services, I need to know for sure that they are who they say they are because people do pretend to be someone else and once a domain is transferred away from our registration services, we no longer have any control, so we need to be sure it really is the celebrity before we will let it be transferred away.

It's possible, and would be great, if the owners of some of these names had good intentions, like letting the proper owner have it if they want it. Hopefully some of them are registered for this purpose, but it's a fact that most celebrity names registered are done for the purpose of making money. They use the celebrity's popularity to make money, or hopefully make money, in one way or another.

The ownership of the domains listed below was last checked March 5, 2008. I will be rechecking them shortly. In the meantime, if you notice any inaccuracies, or anything that has changed since this list was last checked, please let me know.

If you are the owner of any of these domains and the domain(s) should not be on this page, please email me.

These domains are all registered by Tian Yi Tong Investment Ltd. in Hong Kong. They all go to a simple page with a headline "Welcome to the homepage of Me & Ramis!!!", making it look like a simple personal site under construction. It is estimated that they have about 4000 domains. They have had several cases with WIPO about celebrity and business name domains. The ones listed here are obviously not all the celebrity names they have.

These domains all use private registration, and most of them use the same page of affiliate links with the same affiliate IDs. It's possible these are just celebrities who happen to be using the same company to register the domains and are all using the company's default parked page, but considering that some of these celebs have a website at an alternate domain, I highly doubt they own these domains.

Domain ownerships change hands now and then, ond once in a while a celebrity gets their domain. If you notice any domains listed here that shouldn't be, (i.e. were released, given to the proper owner, or under new ownership), please let me know and I will update it here.
