    Apple Takes on Polish Online Supermarket A.pl

    The latest and greatest in their stream of ridiculous suits and attempted injunctions.

    This sounds like what happened years ago with Fry's Electronics. For those who aren't familiar with it, Fry's Electronics is a small chain of electronics stores that started in California. In the late 90's, the company sued the guy who owned the domain name frys.com. The guy owned a company called French Frys that manufactured and sold vending machines that cooked and sold french fries. The company won the lawsuit and the guy had to turn over the domain name to Fry's Electronics.

    Which would explain why they moved from outpost.com to Frys.com

    Checkout Nissan.com

    mit.edu sued mit.com (Merritt Island Technologies?) sometime ago to get a hold of that domain too.
    He who can afford the most "justice" usually wins here.

    Thats a lil different than this case.

    Although now I think that case might not have been won or won so easily. Did mit.edu win that case?

    Apparently.
    mit.com is currently owned (but not used) by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (mit.edu)
