Time For a Custom Email Address?

I Want My Name I Want My Name: So this is scary. From Tumblr:
Starting on June 30, 2017, att.net customers will no longer be able to log in to their Yahoo and Tumblr accounts through email addresses with the following domains: att.net, ameritech.net, bellsouth.net, flash.net, nvbell.net, pacbell.net, prodigy.net, sbcglobal.net, snet.net, swbell.net, and wans.net.

I don’t know why this is happening or what’s going on at Tumblr HQ, but blacklisting a ton of email addresses is pretty bold. And it’s a wakeup call to people everywhere – when your email address is on someone else’s namespace, you have to deal with whatever business decisions that company makes. But if your email address is on your own domain, the worst case is that you’d have to change email hosts.

Cycling Legend Greg LeMond Sues Cybersquatters Upward of $6.6 Million

CircleID CircleID: A federal restraining order has been issued against a father and son accused of registering several domain names based on cycling legend Greg LeMond's name and his company. In a story published in the Star Tribune today, Paul Walsh reports: "[LeMond] is alleging that the two are 'cybersquatters,' having taken control of 66 web addresses using the three-time Tour de France champion's trademarked name and business, called Grail [such as lemondgrail.com and grailcarbon.us] ... U.S. District Judge John Tunheim's temporary restraining order bars the Stinchfields, who live in Orono, from registering any additional domain names tied to the 56-year-old LeMond or his business, or transferring or selling the ones they control." Raymond Hackney in a commentary in The Domains blog writes: "Over the years you run into people who don’t care much about trademark infringement… The thought was that if they got a UDRP they would just let the complainant take the domain name, no big whoop. But I would always say to these people, the complainant doesn’t have to go the UDRP route, they can go for damages under the ACPA."
