Cybersquatting cases: Number 4 - Leona Lewis

Following Leona Lewis' X-factor fame, NetNames bought the domain leonalewis.net and sold it on eBay saying "You would have thought someone as business savvy as Simon Cowell would have had the foresight to protect Leona's online profile."

This is pretty old. Leona Lewis was on X-factor years ago; I wonder if she even still has a singing career? I haven't heard anything from her.

The issue is still relevant today, though. Celebs or aspiring celebs definitely need to be thinking of domain names. Taylor Swift's team is definitely on top of things; they snapped up TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult - smart move!

abuell, I bet Leona Lewis would take issue with you questioning her career. According to wikipedia, she did a duet with Michael Bolton last year, so um...you can draw your own conclusions.
