    Default Michael Jackson estate gets KingOfPop.com domain name

    Michael Jackson estate gets KingOfPop.com domain name
    BY ANDREW ALLEMANN — JULY 8, 2019


    Estate owns domain name two years after entering into a settlement agreement with popcorn seller.

    The estate of Michael Jackson now owns KingOfPop.com after a legal battle.

    It sued Gourmet Gift Baskets in 2016, alleging that the company’s use of KingOfPop.com for a website selling popcorn infringed on the late musician’s famous moniker.

    According to court records, the two parties settled in 2017. But Jackson’s estate just got control of the domain name in recent days.

    This suggests that the confidential settlement had about a two year transition period to allow Gourmet Gift Baskets to transition its use of the domain. The domain resolved to its former website until about the middle of 2018, at which point it began forwarding to gourmetgiftbaskets.com/popcorn.

    Changing a site’s domain name is hard; changing an entire brand is even more challenging.

    KingOfPop.com now forwards to MichaelJackson.com

    Why should the Estate own that term? If it was given by the public to Michael then it's a little odd they should claim ownership of it as a trademark or whatever.

    It means no one else can snatch the domain name up and use it for nefarious purposes. *side-eyes mjfacts*
