Classic: Organizing For Action Blows Domain Name Registration

Organizing for Action,  Obama’s (allegedly) nonpartisan and non-profit advocacy organization run by former advisors was set up to back the Regime on left-wing agenda items like gun control  and immigration reform. In their latest totally non partisan effort, they’re targeting Republicans to push Obama’s gun control policies.

The pro-Obama group Organizing for Action said Monday it is launching online ads targeting 10 Republican senators and one Democrat for their opposition to expanded gun-control measures — the group’s second such campaign on the issue.

Republican Sens. Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Saxby Chambliss (Ga.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Dan Coats (Ind.), Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Susan Collins (Maine), Dean Heller (Nev.), Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ted Cruz (Texas), as well as Democratic Sen. Martin Heinrich (N.M.), are being targeted in the effort.

The ads, which will run on Facebook and on search engines, ask supporters to call the individual senators and express support for expanded gun-control measures.

Not surprisingly, the group, (being libs) didn’t have enough business sense to  protect its presence online, so when a clever individual registered an OFA domain name ahead of them, instead of paying him for the site, OFA went bawling to the National Arbitration Forum – which promptly denied their effort to retrieve  the domain name, organizingforaction.net back to them.

It was registered by “a quick-moving computer technician in Castle Rock, Colo., on Jan. 18, when the news broke that Obama’s former advisors were launching the group”  the LA Times reported:

Derek Bovard proceeded to configure the site so all the hits were directed to the website for the National Rifle Assn. It was one of three domain names for Organizing for Action that the group failed to register before it launched.

“If they don’t like it, they can buy it from me,” Bovard told the Los Angeles Times at the time.

Instead, a lawyer with the firm Perkins Coie, representing Organizing for Action, filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum, which handles disputes over domain names.

***

In a decision issued last week, Karl V. Fink, a retired judge in Ann Arbor, Mich., concluded that Organizing for Action did not provide evidence that the name was “a distinctive identifier” of the group or that it owned any trademarks at the time.

(In fact, the group did not file a trademark registration for “Organizing for Action” until Feb. 7, according to United States Patent and Trademark Office records.)

The  attorney representing OFA declined to comment, and so did a spokeswoman for Organizing for Action.

You’re going to love where organizingforaction.net takes you when you click on the link. Heh!

A  registered Republican who lives in Wellington, Fla.  scooped up both  organizingforaction.com and organizingforaction.org – which OFA also failed to win back.

But those sites now include a disclaimer stating that they are “NOT affiliated with any 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), or other entity or business that uses the generic phrase Organizing For Action as all or a portion of its name.”

The Republican in Florida apparently needs some ideas.

  1. You do good work Deb! What is IMPORTANT for Christians, conservatives to remember is this is a “spiritual battle,”and “our people” (conservatives), need to hear frequently from “us’ on the same issues: In other words, support, encouragement, and so on, so they will know they are not deserted. Example: The National Rifle Association needs memberships and support letters from conservatives to continue fighting the battle. Write support letters to the conservative Repubs. and Democrats who are helping us. Anybody and everybody. THAT WE CAN DO! And PRAY for them. Frequently it comes down to a “talley vote.” RSVP: Harlan A. Hanna, Cobraseal2343hanna@yahoo.com

  2. Obviously, the imperial OFA naturally assumed that no one would DARE take such actions as have been taken and that, if someone was dumb enough to, they (OFA) had enough legal juice to make them pay for their insubordination.

    Typical elitist thought, as shown by our Deceiver-in-Chief (DiC).
