    I just love Rick - always calls a spade a spade.

    There have been MANY attempts at reverse-hijacking of domain names involving companies far larger than these guys in Brazil. Barbie.com comes to mind - guy registered the domain for his daughter who's name is "Barbie". Another involves a well-known Japanese company trying to reverse hijack a domain from a gentlemen who shares the same last name. Don't remember the name, or if it's been resolved, but was/has been in court for over a decade.

    Have a handful of ACTIVE domains that were registered before some well-known companies were in existence. On domain a company registered something similar and even copied elements of the logo. Quick C&D letter and they closed up shop.

    Go get 'em Rick! You're story is already sweeping the internet...

    Jorge moved to Affiliate Legal Lounge for future reference.

    Rick should counter and go after their .br domain based on copyright.

    I bet you're talking about Nissan - Nissan Computer Corporation

    Read Rick's blog post as well, should be fun to watch, I'm sure he'll come out ahead.
