SuperModel Cindy Crawford Files UDRP To Save CindyCrawford.com From Porn

SuperModel Cynthia Ann “Cindy” Crawford, who was once married to Richard Gere, has filed a UDRP with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) seeking the domain name CindyCrawford.com

According to Screenshots.com the domain name CindyCrawford.com as of as recently as August 2012 and going back to 2005, was going to what appears to be the official site for the model, however if you take a look at the domain today, its pointed to material from the hardcore porn star by the same name.

The domain name CindyCrawford.com is currently being forwarded to a different Cindy Crawford, this one a hardcore porn star;  videosz.com/us/porn-star/906_cindy-crawford (WARNING Sexually Explicit Material)

The domain name was owned back in July of 2012 by Ms. Crawford, using an address in Madrid Spain along with a contact of a Julian S. Garcia.

The whois today shows the same Julian S. Garcia of Madrid Spain not only as the administrative contact for the domain name but as the registered owner of the domain.

Here is how the whois record looked like in July of 2012:

cindycrawford.com

Registrant Contact:
CINDY CRAWFORD

CINDY CRAWFORD
Julian S. Garcia (contacto@cindycrawford.com)

ES

Here is how the whois record reads now:

admin-c-email:                   contacto@cindycrawford.com

As you can see the only change in the whois record is that Ms. Crawford is no longer showing as the owner of the domain name.

Instead Mr Garcia is showing as the registrant.

The administrative contact remains unchanged as does the email contact for the domain.

Of course the content of what is now carried on the domain is quite different.

This looks like it maybe one of the more interesting UDRP’s.

We will follow this case and let you know when the decision comes out.

The case number is D2012-2454.

    I don’t think she considers her an ex-supermodel not even sure what that means

    The Supermodel was the listed owner of the domain.

    I know when we lease the domain, the ownership remains with us, but there are a lot of possibilities and we will have to await the decision

    Cindy Crawford’s a very savvy businesswomen. She still makes something like $15 mil a year and has large spokeswoman contracts. Still looks amazing after all these years.

    I wonder aloud if this Garcia woman leased the domain to Cindy, then upon the expiration of their multi-year contract tried to lease/sell it to her for a greatly inflated amount, Cindy refused, so Garcia has the site redirecting to porn out of spite and/or to pressure her.

    Pure speculation, but IF Garcia is using these tactics to defame/pressure Cindy, I hope they give Cindy the domain.
