Back in '00 - I attended Chapel Hill High School - along with someone many of you know as Riley Mason (of Neu Wave Hookers (an Eon McKai film), Cum Swapping gently caress Dolls, and Down The Hatch 17 fame).

After 8th grade, I briefly dated a hairy/smelly gutterpunk chick; who now happens to be one of Riley's good friends. We rarely talk (and it didn't end well back then) but we're friendly still...

So, when I realized two years ago that rileymason.com was owned by some random spammers - I put it on backorder. Recently, it expired - and went up for auction on tdnam.com (GoDaddy's half-assed domain-name-ebay POS site).

I immediately contacted my "old friend" and told her to get in touch with Riley and let her know that I wanted to make her a personal site as an independent study for school (i'm a multimedia student) - and make some merch (bumperstickers, shirts, etc) - and maybe a videoblog. It sounded like a good idea.

Anyhow, I ended up paying 'a lot' for rileymason.com. My "old friend" had told me that she'd contacted Riley and that she was interested - and to message her via myspace - so I did; letting her know that I was in college - considering possibly being an adult webmaster on-the-side, and that i wanted to really know what she wanted to do with "her" domain name. However, she has yet to respond... I figured she was busy but... it's been almost 2 weeks now... so...

I've now heard through the grapevine that my "old friend" instead told her that I was a creep - and that she should have nothing to do with me. Word is that her reaction was something along the lines of "if he puts anything of me up there, 'my company' will sue him".

So, now I am left with rileymason.com and three questions:

1) How do I (Can I?) make ANY money off of rileymason.com - via ads or whatever method. GoDaddy's cash-parking service blows.

2) Am I technically cybersquatting or anything like that? Could i be sued?

3) What would you do with RileyMason.com?

Well yeah, that myspace message she didn't respond to...

Yeah, well my old friend sucks probably because I told the whole school she had hairy boobs. She counterattacked by saying I'd put my thumb up her rear end. Either way... agreed.

Try and Stop Us.

1. You can't. It's a pretty stupid domain name nobody is going to be searching to find. Anytime you put into making it popular would be a waste of effort and resources seeing as at anytime she can basically take it from you. Popular domain + Using her name = Time to claim what's yours.

2. Yes. However, she can't technically sue you if she offers cash equal to what you paid for the domain, and some small pain in the rear end fees. If you then tell her you want a million dollars for it she can then sue you and easily win. Plus, you basically told her in email you have it because of her, and if she's not a dumb bitch she saved that for future reclamation of the domain.

3. Return it or use it as a spam server domain.

Long story short if I was her I wouldn't pay attention to you until you invested a ton of time making the domain popular. Then I would take it from you, give you the $15 reg fee, and use the traffic / community you built for my own endeavors.

some cool quote here

You should sell bukkake and store it in Mason jars and be "Riley Mason's Mason jars full of bukkake."

Then you should also have a list of other 'famous' peoples bukkake for sale.

Try not to screw this up in a bad way. Here's the situtation from a ousiders perpective, her freind has screwed you over, unless you live near her you can't change the outcome. You have a website domain name that if used to host pornography that is copyrighted by her, will get you sued and give you at worst a criminal record.

Now what are your options, you could turn this into a porn site for yourself and set up hosting servers, also on top of that there are people who will still come to the domain name because of a mistake and may or may not take up your offer to subscribe to your porn site.

The other option is to get in contact with her or her lawers by phone and explian your situtation and ask them permission to host stuff on this domain.

Lastly you could use the website for something else, in the end though you still own the domain name and so long asyou don't copyright her without permission, she can't shut you down.


Good Luck with the domain name and remeber, some freinds can be complete retards.

None taken.

If he approached it like a business deal, possibly contacting her management and explaining it was for school with some kind of documentation from said higher learning type place, then it might fly.
Odds are they'd release the lawyers, but if the OP went about it in a professional and businesslike way, it had a shot. As is, he blew any chance atall by messaging her on loving Myspace.

I would also like to point out pornographers stick together. If she sees you running a porn site and making affiliate sales it takes her one phone call to get the companies you're playing affiliate through to cancel your checks, tracking codes, and/or forward said checks to her.

They also won't tell you until you complain, and then laugh at all the free traffic you send their galleries.

School project sounds even more disturbing. Anyone who chooses "Girl who knows an old friend of mine sucking a dick on the internet" as a school project is disturbed. You are creepy.

You wanted to make Riley Mason bumper stickers. How many porn star specific bumper stickers have you ever seen? How many people do you know are so proud of their pornography collection that they must alert the entire highway that they've seen and enjoyed watching Riley Mason get her holes plugged? I've been driving for 10 years, and I have seen 0.

You are weird and creepy.

If anyone tells you to do anything regarding anything remotely related to work or professionalism via Myspace, that is your big clue that you are being shined on.

Who doesn't want to do porn as a school project?

suicidegirls and burningangel have bumperstickers. i guess i don't see many tiffanyteen bumperstickers or anything but... i dunno it'd be a fun design project?

So why can't you just offer to sell the domain name to her or her management company for a tidy profit? Do they know how much you bought it for? You could probably offer it to them for $500+ and still make a decent profit.

I mean that SOUNDS nice in theory... but proposing such a thing seemed more odd than inquiring with her about it.
