Trump Lawyers Going After Owner of TrumpEstates.com
[su_right_ad]If it has the name Trump in it, The Donald believes it is rightfully his.
The real-estate titan is poised to develop a luxury housing complex in Dubai called Trump Estates, but doesn’t own the TrumpEstates domain name.
A Trump Organization lawyer turned down a chance to buy it some 10 years ago from Scott Stephens, a former New Yorker who registered TrumpEstates.com in 2004 with the hope of selling it.
Stephens got a cease-and-desist letter last week from the Trump Organization ordering him to transfer the domain name.
Trump Estates is not a registered trademark. But Trump Organization Executive Vice President Alan Garten told The Post that didn’t matter “because the Trump name is trademarked” and that Stephens was violating the law by “cyber squatting” on the domain name.
