BBC NEWS | Wales | North East Wales | Rooney wins his fight for website
The same result for the .uk. The only surprise is to see Rooney scoring twice at the moment...:twisted:
Given the accepted (but probably unfairly) low threshold for rights in the DRS, I'd say the Expert should be congratulated on a detailed and fair decision.
Rooney scores! | The Register
How can Willoughby be involved in .com decisions and .co.uk decisions at the same time?
For example could he have been the expert on WayneRooney.com and WayneRooney.co.uk?
Or did they get Andrew Murray to do the .co.uk because he can say:
:twisted: Ye Ha - we're gona clear out this town - lets get um boys... :twisted:

I get this growing feeling that you are guilty until you provide evidence to the contrary...surely this is against our legal system?
Tony said in the WIPO case 'Whether his stated intention would have been enough for this purpose is an open question.'
Is that a question Tony has a right to answer??
DRS should be based on FACTS not personal opinions or guesswork. Nominet should do something constructive and give it to the Patent office to deal with based on strict TM laws.
I am sure there would have been a media uproar if he hadn't have got hold of the domain(s)
I'm starting to think T.W. may be a tad biased.
Could it be that it is he that is in fact the root of all evil and not Nomint??? :shock:
Is it the case that Nominet has sold their soul to this man? :twisted:
It's all a bit Friday the 13th, if you ask me.
PS: Maybe we should invite him to the Acorn get together!
I don't really know anything about these laws or this case at all to be honest, but I did have a question about this:
"A ruling was made that the domain name must be handed to the Manchester United striker and his management company". - Quote from BBC News website.
So my question is this. If another person with the name Wayne Rooney came forward and said they should get it - who would get it?
Surely they couldn't just give it to the famous Rooney because he is famous or has better legal representation?
Separate names with a comma.
