I see Ezra is still playing sleazy games with domain name registration.


You'd think that, after six years, he might get tired of this kind of unprincipled, childish bullshit. Apparently not.

P.S. If you want to see just the publicly-visible domain names registered by Rebel News' Ezra Levant, well, here you go. And keep in mind, that list does not include any ".ca" domains, so there's a lot more.

P.P.S. Oh, and let us not overlook the domains registered by Rebel News.

Think you've mused on this issue before, but is this legal? This seems like a type of identity fraud.

It's domain squatting because he's not doing anything with it, and the last time it was attached to an actual web page was 4 years ago.

Robert could file a complaint with WIPO, get the domain transferred to him, and make Ezra pay damages.

I'm sure you have a company, and people know you as the CanadianCynic (That's what I've known you as since we first interacted on Twitter years ago. You could easily prove trade usage.

Years ago a client lost a domain to a plastic surgery place in New York. I don't remember the domain name off hand, but my client in Edmonton lost it because while they registered it, they just forwarded it to a different one. It was squatting and something they did on their own.

We could have fought it, but the costs were astronomical. Ezra won't fight itl he doesn't even use the fucking thing.

I have domains that I don't use public facing. They DO however go to a website to be active. It's easy to recover domains that are idle and idle for a while.

I wonder if David Climenhaga knows that the bottom feeding Levant has a domain in his name?

It's one thing to squat on a domain, something internet hucksters do to bid off to interested buyers, it's another to redirect it maliciously. It's a very 2-bit effort to drive traffic to a website to inflate visitor counts. Both are from the early days of juvenile desperate SEO and definitely not best practices or anywhere close to legit advertising standards.
