I was reading TMZ.com, which I do daily. Yes I like celebrity gossip, lol. During my daily read of celebrity news I found an article which included GoDaddy.
It appears that Michael Jackson’s estate is suing the owner of MichaelJacksonCasino.com and has included GoDaddy in that lawsuit. Why is GoDaddy involved, because they allowed the registrant to purchase the name using their service.
A rep for Go Daddy told TMZ, “While we have not seen the lawsuit, if we are named, Go Daddy plans to vigorously defend itself.” The rep adds, “When customers are involved in a legal dispute, Go Daddy complies with court orders.”

Just curious, do you think registrars should be held liable for allowing registrants to purchase trademark or questionable domain names?
