Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Liz Hurley tries to sue domain name company

Some people have suggested that Liz Hurley's a talentless strike-breaking clotheshorse. Fergus Gray isn't one of them:

Your item on Liz Hurley is total shit.

Can you explain to me why it is that people have the right to make money out of someone else's name but the person who did the work that gave the name it's value has no right to control it's use?

Are you so empty headed as to believe that people with high public profiles should allow no nothing wankers to capitalize on their work?

Your opinion would be radically different were it your name being put on work you never did so that some other blood sucking leech could trade on all that you had tried to achieve.

Your opinions on people such as Liz Hurley should have nothing to do with the venal exploitation that is made of their image, what value would you have as a reporter without credibility to back up your work?

As much as I enjoy the sniping that goes on at the Register this shitty piece has no place there.

You're absolutely right Fergus. When we get our hands on the people behind kierenmcarthy.com - a second-rate piece of cybersquatting full of poor jokes about the b-list celebrities - well, we'll probably offer them a job. ®
