Big Guns

Ruh-roh... Had a conversation with a programmer in Seattle, who broke the news to me... There was a rather lackluster site called thinklocal (just like mine but no hyphen). I didn't really see the site going anywhere, though it did have a few random listings (but why would anyone go there, with just a few random listings?)

Gulp! What was that? That was the sound of that site being purchased by Network Solutions (huge company). So now, Network Solutions offers not just domain names, but also they'll create an e-commerce site for you AND they'll list your site in thinklocal. That's why Network Solutions bought thinklocal.

That also means if I do anything similar with think-local, I might have a legal fight with Network Solutions, and I'm sure they have more attorneys than I do!

  1. They're located in Herndon, Fairfax Co., VA. Where I practice law. Maybe I can help; trade-name infringement is a basis for a lawsuit for damages and injunction in Virginia.
