Claim My Name Offers Vanity URLs Across Multiple Sites

first_imgAs proven by last month’s Facebook Vanity URL rush, there’s value in personal domain names. As an answer to brand protection across multiple networks, DandyID is launching ClaimMyName at around 3pm this afternoon. The site allows users to register their custom URLs across hundreds of social networking and social media sites for a fee. And the service certainly doesn’t come cheap to individuals. The 20 domain starter pack costs $80 and the 300 domain pro pack is $699. Then again, when has security ever been sold at cut rate prices? Essentially this is a seemingly easy way for companies and individuals to mitigate risk; however, when there is no verification process to keep out squatters, the system can definitely backfire. ClaimMyName works under the assumption that only you would be willing to buy your own domain name. While it seems like a high price tag for individuals, $699 is relatively cheap for a major corporation to buy hundreds of domains bearing its own name or competitor’s name. In fact, at a time when world news travels fastest by Twitter, and elections are financed via Facebook, $699 is an absolute drop in the bucket for politicos. Oh you don’t think anyone would stoop to squat on the domains of key opposition figures? Look at the facts. The National Arbitration Forum denied former US President Bill Clinton’s cybersquatting complaint against Joseph Culligan who has been redirecting, and to the Republican National Committee’s website.The National Arbitration Forum is one of the ICANN’s selected resolutions providers under the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy. This piece of legislation deals directly with international domain names and cyber squatting. And because the group did not see “evidence of bad faith” in Culligan’s usage of the domains, Clinton is left in a lurch. While this isn’t surprising to see someone lose the battle for a domain, it is surprising to see someone lose the battle for a domain that is being used in such a obviously misleading manner. While I feel for the former president, campaign strategists and business pundits have been warning us to register our chosen domains for years. Perhaps Clinton should’ve simply known better. Just look at the strange nomenclature of a ton of Web 2.0 companies. Do you really think Flickr’s first domain choice dropped the “e”? Good domains are few and far between. It appears that with the Facebook Vanity rush, the subsequent creation of the Personal URL Facebook App and now the launch of ClaimMyName, individuals and companies are thinking about their online legacies. While critics in the Open ID camp certainly have their fair share of issues with domain grabs on 3rd party sites, I’ve got a personal branding reason to avoid mass registering 3rd party domains. If you’re just a normal person without any enemies, and you stake a profile without any intent to use it, you’re really just a useless parasite in an otherwise vibrant community. When you don’t even want to introduce yourself, but you lay claim to your namesake, you’re branding yourself as both lazy and paranoid. That being said, if you’ve truly got to protect your brand, or you’re the type of person that will attempt to produce great content across multiple sites, then by all means pay DandyID the money and put your best face forward.

2G scam: SC to hear Kanimozhi, Sharad Kumar’s bail pleas on June 20

first_imgDMK MP Kanimozhi.A special Supreme Court bench will on Monday hear the bail plea of DMK MP Kanimozhi and Kalaignar TV MD Sharad Kumar in the 2G spectrum scam case after two of the judges recused from hearing the matter.Kanimozhi is likely to face some tough time in convincing the court to grant her bail as the case will be heard by a bench headed by Justice G S Singvi, who has been monitoring the case since the beginning and had asked searching questions to the government on the role of several influential people in the multi-crore scam.It would be the last hope for DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s 43-year-old daughter Kanimozhi, who has been in jail for almost a month, after her plea was rejected first by the special CBI court and then by the Delhi High Court.Kanimozhi and Kumar have been accused by the CBI to be involved in the illegal transaction of Rs 200 crore to Kalaignar TV which was alleged to be a bribe given by a telecom operator which had benefited in the scam.The CBI in its affidavit filed in the apex court opposed their bail pleas on the ground that if released, they could tamper with evidence and influence witnesses.Earlier two judges — P Sathasivam and A K Patnaik — before whom the matter was listed had recused themselves from the high-profile case.Instead, Justice Singhvi, whose bench has been monitoring the case, will tomorrow hold a special hearing along with Justice B S Chauhan to decide the bail.advertisementAccording to informed sources, justices P Sathasivam and A K Patnaik conveyed their decision to recuse to Chief Justice S H Kapadia, following which he constituted another bench.Opposing the bail plea, the probe agency contended in its affidavit that Kanimozhi and Kumar were key conspirators and Rs 200 crore transferred to Kalaignar TV was part of the “bribe” amount and not a loan as claimed by the accused.The central agency submitted the special CBI court and later the Delhi High Court carefully evaluated material evidence and other factors to refuse bail to them.The apex court had on June 13 agreed to hear their bail plea and asked CBI to explain where the Rs 200 crore, allegedly diverted to DMK-owned Kalaignar TV in 2G scam, has gone and also to file a response on their bail pleas in a week’s time.The court had also asked CBI to come out with a status report on the loss to the state exchequer due to the award of 13 licences to one of the telecom operators and trial proceedings in the CBI special court.Kanimozhi and Kumar had moved the apex court seeking bail on June 10 challenging the Delhi High Court verdict that rejected their bail on the ground that they have strong political connections and the possibility of them influencing witnesses cannot be ruled out.- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
