Romney – Ryan owners want cool quarter of a million dollars for the domain
On Saturday we wrote about the existence of the domain name, RomneyRyan.com – the matching .com of the Republican ticket for the 2012 elections in the US.
The owners had it listed at Sedo, but the website itself was pulling content from MittRomney.com via the simple use of content framing. Somehow, they made it look as if it’s a legitimate web site for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
It seems that the owners are now parking the domain at Sedo, soliciting offers. For fun, we were tempted to offer a crispy $100 and they came back asking $250,000 for it!
The election race is heating up and many visitors will end up at RomneyRyan.com, thinking it is the proper place to go.
Since the domain consists of the last names of the Republican nominee and his VP of choice, it’s very possible that a UDRP would challenge its ownership.
