Three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond won a restraining order against two cybersquatters who own 66 web addresses that use his name and the name of his carbon-fiber technology business, Grail.
According to the StarTribune, LeMond is suing marketer Frederick H. Stinchfield and his son, Frederick H. Stinchfield III, for $6.6. million. Among the websites operated by the Stinchfields are lemondgrail.com, grailcarbon.us.websites, and lemond industries.com (which features LeMond’s image, his name, and some “derogatory information”). The lawsuit notes that the Stinchfields own other domain names that are “associated” with public figures, like singer/songwriter Rihanna and former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner.
