Prince.com changes hands as part of legal settlement.
The estate of late musician Prince (or whatever he was finally called) now owns the domain name Prince.com.
Domain Capital, which owned the domain name, and the estate got into a legal tussle in which the estate claimed the domain was cybersquatting and Domain Capital counter sued for reverse domain name hijacking.
The parties settled in January and there was an escrow agreement involved. This suggests that Domain Capital agreed to transfer the domain name in return for a cash payment.
As of yesterday, the domain name is at brand protection registrar Com Laude and shows that Paisley Park Enterprises, Inc. is the owner. The domain name does not resolve to a website.
