Might need to register ThePowerOfManySucks.com

Over at Hot Points, GoDadddy founder and president Bob Parsons notes that the US 9th Circuit has ruled it OK for critics of a business entity to register “{entity name here}sucks.com” as a domain name, even when the entity’s name is a registered trademark.

This evening, Parsons will discuss the ramifications of this on RadioGoDaddy.com:

We plan on talking about how the 9th circuit’s recent decision to allow people to register others’ domain names (even if they are trademarked!) with the word “Sucks” appended to it (i.e. GoDaddySucks.com) could affect your business and you personally. We’ll tell you what you can and should do about it.
