Big Bad Penguin
It seems that the big dogs are hounding some woman over a domain name, Katie.com, that she has owned since 1996. The poor woman is traumatized and even pushed to the point of considering letting it go after passing up several $$$ offers in the past.
As an author, what would I do if my publisher was ruining some poor woman's life? I don't know, but I'd like to think I could be creative enough to figure out a different web promotion option. How about KatieTheBook.com. I just tried it and nobody has that. Nobody has Katiedotcom.com, either.
If I were the victim, would I split a section of my site off and sell the controversial book in hopes of reaping some kind of benefit from the heaps of unwanted traffic? Who knows? But this is too bad.
What would you do?
