Anyone who watches the hit tv show Pawn Stars will be familiar with Chumlee (Austin Lee Russell). Well it seems Chumlee is in the candy business but did not secure the domain names for his business.
TMZ posted a story this morning about the owner of chumleescandy.com and chumleescandyontheblvd.com admitting that he regged the domains in order to sell them to Chumlee.
From the article:
Keys tells TMZ … he’s been making his living for 20 years buying and selling domain names, and when news broke in May that Chumlee was opening the candy store … he made a smart business move by swiping the domains. He says he tried contacting Chumlee several times to work out a deal for the names, but never heard back.
Apparently Chumlee has had his counsel send a cease and desist. Next step UDRP.
Interestingly the comments don’t reflect what we normally see, usually it’s like those damn cybersquatters. But the crowd over at TMZ don’t seem to care for Chumlee, so they are telling him to pay up and are taking pleasure in seeing him in this dispute.
