Hockey Hall-of-famer Doug Gilmour gets DougGilmour.com

Hockey great gets his namesake .com.
Former NHL great Doug Gilmour, who was inducted into the hockey hall of fame this year, has won a UDRP proceeding over the domain name DougGilmour.com.
I remember watching Gilmour play for the St. Louis Blues in the 1980s.
The registrant of the domain name said he was Gilmour “biggest fan” and that he had registered it as a fan site. He also argued that Gilmours likeness belongs to the National Hockey League and not Gilmour, which was an interesting argument to say the lease.
Yet the domain name promoted hockeyvideohighlights.com, a commercial site apparently operated by the registrant. HockeyVideoHighlights.com expired on December 11.
The panel found that the domain name was registered in bad faith and that the registrant had no rights or legitimate interests in the domain name. It will be transferred to Gilmour within the next 10 days.
