Mr Koopa (12:13:06 PM): Haha, dude
Mr Koopa (12:13:14 PM): I always thought Wouter was like his actual name
Im Ngamer (12:39:24 PM): well the issue is whether the Swedish urban slang was named after him, or the other way around
Im Ngamer (12:39:32 PM): kind of a, what came first, the chicken or the egg
Mr Koopa (12:40:13 PM): Ahh. 'cause if that's his actual name, you guys totally should not have to listen to them. I mean, it's his NAME, you can't copyright somebody else's name
Im Ngamer (12:44:11 PM): hm, I'm not sure about that... would I be allowed to hold on to georgebush.com if that were my real name?
Im Ngamer (12:44:25 PM): or would they find some way to force me out
Mr Koopa (12:45:38 PM): Well, that's a bit different. By taking that website, you prevent anyone else from using that name
Im Ngamer (12:46:14 PM): but if it's just search results, you don't think they have a leg to stand on?
Mr Koopa (12:46:30 PM): But they're still free to have wouterjansen.com as their website. They don't have a toe to stand on
Mr Koopa (12:47:04 PM): I mean, it's not like people can't actually access their site because of yours
Im Ngamer (12:47:22 PM): well that's one way to see it... if they're that concerned, I guess they could pay to be a google paid sponsor
Im Ngamer (12:47:33 PM): so they're the first result when that search is made
Mr Koopa (12:47:37 PM): Yeah, or actually have a site worth linking to
Mr Koopa (12:47:49 PM): So that it shows up higher on the list
Mr Koopa (12:49:11 PM): Especially if your site's been around longer than theirs. If it has, then it's proof that you weren't doing it just to sabotage their site, they should have known better
Im Ngamer (12:50:14 PM): ok... I wish Clark's lawyer would have explained it this way
Mr Koopa (12:51:23 PM): Heh, law? I don't know anything about law. What I know is damn common sense :P
Im Ngamer (12:53:45 PM): alright... we'll keep this in mind as we move ahead
