Actress Sigourney Weaver picks up her namesake domain name.
Actress Sigourney Weaver has been awarded the domain name SigourneyWeaver.com by an arbitration panel at National Arbitration Forum. She filed the claim last month.
The owner of the domain name, Stephen Gregory, did not respond to the allegations. Weaver’s complaint stated that Gregory forwarded the domain name to a porn site until the complaint was received, at which time the forward was removed. The complaint also pointed out that Gregory has lost two other celebrity domain name cases, including FrandRescher.com and BradFaxon.com. Weaver claimed that previous celebrity cases usually involved forwarding the domain name to an adult web site. Gregory won a case over the domain name Foreigner.com back in 2003.
Weaver, a popular actress, has starred in many movies including the Alien franchise.
