Actress files complaint against owner of HalleBerry.com.
Actress Halle Berry has filed a cybersquatting complaint in order to obtain the domain name HalleBerry.com. The case was filed under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) with World Intellectual Property Organization.
[Update: Halle Berry won the case]
The domain name is owned by Alberta Hod Rods, a company that has registered many celebrities’ domain names. The company has already lost cases filed by Pamela Anderson, Ashley Judd, Sandra Bullock and Cameron Diaz.
Visiting HalleBerry.com currently shows a 403 error. About ten years ago it forwarded to a celebrity site.
The big mystery about this case is why Berry waited so long to file it.
