Musician gets LadyGaga.mobi domain name through cybersquatting dispute.
If you cybersquatted on a bunch of famous peoples’ names on .mobi domain names, would anyone care?
Apparently Lady Gaga does.
Stefani Germanotta filed a cybersquatting complaint against Nancy Faralisz of The Michigan Initiative LLC over the domain name LadyGaga.mobi.
Faralisz didn’t respond to the complaint and the panel found in Lady Gaga’s favor.
.Mobi domain names, for those that aren’t familiar with them, were a neat idea for websites to be able to show mobile-optimized content to visitors. This was before, you know, responsive web design.
Why Lady Gaga cares about a .mobi domain is beyond me, but a number of other famous people might also want to pay attention. Among the domains registered to Farlisz: PamelaAnderson.mobi, EltonJohn.mobi, RollingStones.mobi and RachaelRay.mobi
