Fox Reclaims Web Domain for 'Simpsons' Film

Twentieth Century Fox won't have to pay a "cyber-squatter" for rights to The Simpsons Movie domain name on the Web. Keith Malley of Brooklyn, N.Y., signed up for "thesimpsonsmovie.com" and sought $50,000 to surrender it. But the U.N.'s World Intellectual Property Organization says he has no legitimate right to the name.
