Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) August 21, 2006 –-
The campaign office of Karl Dickey for Florida Senate said today that a key member of Irv Slosberg’s campaign threatened, via telephone, to litigate for using the letirvserve.net and .org domain names. A complete review of ICANN’s Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy, the U.S. Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act and the Florida Department of Elections rules do not prohibit such activity. The campaign is not using Mr. Slosberg’s name or any registered trademark belonging to him or his campaign.
Karl Dickey said in reaction, “I was shocked to hear that my opponent found me to be such a threat to his campaign as to anticipate litigating against me. His senior staffer seemed to imply I was utilizing his email address and using his information on my website which is completely without fact. Anyone going to http://www.dickey2006.org can see his name is rarely mentioned and the website is dedicated to my idea of small government, lower taxes and more freedom – perhaps that is what he finds so intimidating.”
“You’ll be hearing from our attorneys,” the senior staff member said at the end of the telephone conversation
