Domain hijacking

Saturday 4 May 2002

In February I mentioned Leslie Harpold and the delights of her hoopla.com website. In early April Verisign, without Leslie's approval, transferred her domain name to someone else. While she tries to get back what is rightfully hers, Leslie has uploaded the contents of hoopla to a campsite at leslie.harpold.com.

I hope my domain is safe from hijacking — Verisign is not involved, and who else would want marquis-kyle.com.au?

Update: Leslie Harpold died unexpectedly in 2006. According to Wikipedia After her death her family chose not to maintain her websites or allow others to make her work available. This loss to the Web of her work raised the issue of digital estate plan­ning for online creators.
