'Swimming World Magazine' wrestles the 'Swimming World' domain name away from cybersquatters!
From Wikipedia: Cybersquatting (also known as domain squatting): according to the United States federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, is registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. The cybersquatter then offers to sell the domain to the person or company who owns a trademark contained within the name at an inflated price.
Swimming World Magazine went toe-to-toe with one of these jerks and now if you type in SwimmingWorld.com, guess where it goes?
