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.
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.
