Colombia Pictures wins dispute over domain name.
“The domain! The domain!”
Fantasy Island has been returned to Columbia Pictures — in cyberspace, that is.
The company just won a domain name dispute for FantasyIsland.com.
You can’t blame the company for not registering FantasyIsland.com when the show first aired in the 70s. Although you can question why it waited until now to file this complaint.
One possibility: there’s talk of a reality TV show in the works based on the Fantasy Island concept.
The owner of the domain didn’t respond to the complaint. The web address resolves to a parking page with links to “Fantasy Island”, “Bewitched”, and “Starsky Hutch”.
