This is the day that "The Simpsons Movie" reaches movie theatres, so our last word in business today is "The Simpsons Movie." It's been decided that 20th Century Fox will not have to pay a cyber-squatter for the rights to "The Simpsons Movie" domain name on the World Wide Web. The name had been registered to a Mr. Kenneth Malley of Brooklyn, New York.
He apparently didn't have anything to do with 20th Century Fox or the Simpsons or "The Simpsons Movie." Mr. Malley wanted to sell the right to place a Web site at that address for $50,000, but the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva, Switzerland ruled that Malley had no legitimate rights to the name and ordered him to give it up.
