Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz Win Domain Names

Celebrities win domain names through arbitration.

As a follow up to Domain Name Wire’s earlier stories, both Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz have won their respective domain names through arbitration proceedings.

Actor and comedian Jim Carrey filed his case in April with World Intellectual Property Organization to get the domain name JimCarrey.com. According to Compete.com, JimCarrey.com gets a few hundred unique visitors per month.

Actress Cameron Diaz filed a case with National Arbitration Forum in April to get CameronDiaz.com.

Carrey and Diaz join several other celebrities to pick up their domain names through arbitration lately. Jay Leno has filed to get several domain names (some of which were handed over already), Alien Star Sigourney Weaver won SigourneyWeaver.com, and the owner of ElizabethTaylor.com gave Elizabeth Taylor the domain name after she filed a complaint.

    It was my domain, not big earner and if Mr Carrey would have asked I would give it to him. unfortunately everything is now run by greedy lawyers. Most of the WIPOs would be cheaper if complainant would offer $2K to the domain owner. Instead, lawyers charge $5~$10K and they lose sometimes, too. Sad reality – world (and especially USA) is run but scrupuous people, usually bellow average intelligent, who call themself ESQ (!)

  2. Uhhh what? says

    You say that the domain was “not big earner” — but that indicates to me that you were making at least *some* money from Jim Carrey’s famous name. Not cool, dude.

    And why should a complainant REWARD you with $2K for each domain you’ve registered containing that complainant’s famous name?

    D: So you’re saying that the domain world should be run by greedy, unscrupulous domainers, rather than by greedy, unscrupulous lawyers, because the former is cheaper?

    I suppose that’s logical, even though I imagine most people would prefer for both sets of people to be shipped off to a deserted island formerly used for nuclear-bomb testing.

    Besides that, Jim Carrey makes, what, $10 million a year? He probably figures $3k to $8k to screw you over to be money well spent.
