  1. If anyone will make her a website then they can have another name. I doubt it if she wants one. Maybe her fans would.

  2. Hi. I think there’d ought to be a law against cybersquatting, where not anybody could register a domain name similar to that of some other famous person without prior permission. Such occurences concerning Ms. Quigaman is truly lamentable.

  3. Reprehensible. But perhaps Ms. International is not interested anyway…

    Someone made a thesis in the Ateneo Law School about that a few years back. I know because that student defended it before me. I think there was a pending bill about that.

    Let me check my files…

  4. yes, i believe that cybersquatting should be considered as a cyber crime..web companies who sell these domains should check whether the person registering it is really the person or has a consent from that person and that the domain won’t be used to redirect to a porn site or any obscene sites. i hope the bill would be passed as a law. 🙂
