JimMorrison.com in dispute at WIPO.
The estate of the late rocker Jim Morrison wants the domain name JimMorrison.com, and it is taking its fight to World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) under UDRP rules.
The domain name is currently owned by Rick Sentieri. The web site at JimMorrison.com includes lots of content that doesn’t exactly paint a coherent picture. The site proclaims:
Welcome to the home of Jim Morrison’s Fantasy Magazine. It is the place where reality is completely and most definitely out of the question…Our mission brings together a unified society with the commitment to supply a forum for undiscovered talent. Rick Sentieri, Publisher. We help to bring dreams to life. By assiting (sic) artist with publishing and marketing thier (sic) artistry.
The web site includes links to everything under the sun, including “Health”, “Finance”, and “Shopping”. The meta tag description for the site reads “Shop, listen to poetry, learn about the world or explore the paranormal.”
Morrison, who died in 1971, was best known as lead singer of The Doors.
The arbitration case is still pending compliance checks at WIPO.
