Domain that name!

The domain names, and, and even more variations, were snapped up by Angelina Jolie through her Los Angeles lawyer (from Lavely & Singer!) on the same day Jolie gave birth!

Similarly, was registered to Britney Spears through the firm. Unlike the Jolie URLs, was pounced on by a party other than Spears before Lavely & Singer got it back for her.

Tom Cruise's camp didn't lock up, hence the unauthorized sitecounting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until Cruise and Katie Holmes' daughter Suri comes of legal age.

I don't know why this fascinates me, but it does. Just like when Ur's husband, Peter, also an attorney, purchased domain names like, etc., despite practicing immigration law. He hopes to sell the domain names to interested parties in the future. I think the idea is pure genius, especially when purchasing a domain is so cheap (like $10 a year) and if someone wants it, they'll have to pay...
