    I went to register my .com and found that it was taken. I checked the ownership and it was purchased 3 years ago by a person in competition with me. He links it to his website. Is there any way for me to stop his using my name to benefit him and link to his website. I am loosing business from his actions. He only wants to sell me my name back. What should I do?:

    Unfortunately there is not much you can do about this online. However if he is maliciously damaging your business and you can prove it, you can always take him to court.

    Thank you. I don't know if anyone has actually gone to his website and decided to just use him after the contact. I would only know if they told me. However, he wants me to purchase the names from him for a profit. Also, after I found out he bought the .com he then purchased the same day I spoke to him, the .net and .org. His is not a very nice person. There should be some laws against this type of internet buying.
    Thanks again!

    He did it with intent to keep business from the competition and there are ethic standards to follow as a Realtor as well as other professions. We must make some laws for this kind of identity theft!

    I understand what your saying... but your more than likely to get no where with this.
    Unless your willing to "buy" them off of Him.
