The domain name has been registered to Mr. Francisco Arias from Bogata, Colombia.  His email is: FranciscoJavierArias@yahoo.com

 

Should I be worried that you can find that out :rolleyes:

The sad part is that Francisco Arias has become somewhat of a celebrity of these boards...

 

 

...who is that person? :"> I dont think I have came across that name. Well, at least from what I can remember.

Not at all, it's public knowledge. Anyone can look up who the domain is registered to. It even lists the guys phone number. Unless you were being sarcastic, in which case you should be worried. :)

There's ways around that (the registry info being easily public viewable), but it usually means paying more for a 'middle-man' whois service. :rolleyes:"

I'll be tempted to call him up and laugh at him if LA decides not to make a Kotor III... right after crying like a two year old girl with a boo-boo... :ph34r:

Agreed.  I think he's hoping for Lucasarts to approach him and buy off the site name for big bucks.  There were several such cases before.

 

i thought "domain camping" was illegal.

Well, maybe not stricly "illegal", but certainly the indiviual will have no leg to stand on in court, and will probably have to forfeit the domain for free (and maybe pay costs); unless a person can prove they had the domain for years and it is not an obvious use of a famous trademark or IP in the first place (and this usually has meant an acronym, like microsoft had no way of getting ms.com from MorganStanley).

Yes, well if www.kotor3.com is bought and this Francisco is waiting for Lucasarts to buy the domain then he might as well buy:

 

www.doom4.com

www.quake4.com

www.unreal3.com

www.halo3.com

www.battlefield3.com

 

To name a few. Succeeding the companies to buy the domains for large sums of money however, he never will.

You had to do it, didnt you? You just had to.  :- :-

'

The guy is simply trying to cash in. It's like the website http://mikerosoft.com

 

Plus Kotor 3 website will be hosted on lucasarts. At most it may have a shortcut link like www.kotor3.com but they're not going to spend 5000 dollars for a said url

 

Actually, my comment referred to the guy who chose Darth Vader as his sn. Why, I say?! Why?! :blink:

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

Then again maybe.....just maybe..... Its a deliberate attempt to fool the fanbase of a game thats already in development.....That it isn't :)"

 

Possible people, unlikely - Probably, dishonest - Definitly, but certainly possible, to say it isn't is foolish.

 

And before people overwhelm me with facts to the contrary, I'm just wishful thinking. :wub:

I like this point of view. I agree with you.
