Any attempt by large corporations to use their financial power to confiscate such domain names from their rightfull owners will be viewed by the public as theft.  It will not end at the completion of the court dates.  We will launch major negative publicity campaigns against these corporations that will cause them public embarassment for years and years into the future!

There are thousands of companies and many are disappointed to find that their idea website name was taken by other businesses.  That is simply a fact of life.  For a company to act in such an immature fasion - to so blatantly bully a much smaller company - should be a crime in itself.  Nissan Motors should be grateful that Mr. Nissan was kind enough to put on his website the correct address for Nissan Motors.
I was considering buying a Nissan vehicle, but will not for any reason.  I wish all the best to Mr. Nissan in his dispute and hope the worst for Nissan Motors.

They have no right to do this to you.  This just proves that big corporations step on the little guy.  You registered the domain before they did.  It's their problem that they didn't register earlier.  Your family was using the Nissan name long before Nissan the car company was even thought of.  I hope you win.
I was seriously thinking of purchasing a Nissan Xterra, but after reading this, I'm going to buy a Ford Explorer SportTrac.
Best of luck and..."Mean people suck!"

I never thought somebody could be so disgustingly greedy, they have no rights, I will do all i can that nobody I know ever buy a Nissan!!!

Give the Nissan Computer a break!  I am now hesitant of buying another car NISSAN and planning to get rid of my present car named NISSAN Quest.

Might does not make right.  Nissan Motor Corporation should have the good sense and ethical decency to either make a substantial offer to buy the domain name if they want it.  Litigation as an attempt to bully a small business into submission by attrition is not acceptable.  As the current owner of two Nissan vehicles, this makes me think that I might have to change to Toyota or Honda, or some good-ole domestic brand.  I hit this site looking for Nissan Motor Corporation, but will not go there after learning of this action.

This is a matter that needs to be taken directly to the Geneva based WIPO, the United Nations copyright and intellectual property agency that runs an arbitration system for cybersquatting cases. Nissan Motor is trying to use the financial and mental burden of litigation to pressure Nissan Computer to give up these domain names. Nissan Computers has a legitimate right to these names, and needs to take the quickest path to proving this. That path would be going directly to the WIPO.

Just because a company is the biggest player with a given name does not mean that the smarter players do not have a right to the same name as well. In cyberspace the early bird gets the worm. Nissan Computers in this case was the early bird, and Nissan Motors slept in until lunch. I am shocked that Nissan Motor is trying to bully Nissan Computer to give up these domain names just because Nissan Motor was slow to act.

I was disgusted to hear of your recent attempt to bankrupt the Nissan family business through a nuisance suit.  It is an obvious ploy to confiscate their domain name that you want to use yourselves.  Your "deep pockets" should be used to  contribute to the free market economy and the spirit of the free internet.  This low behavior of yours only discredits your company name.  You will  lose much more in customer relations than you could possibly gain -- and do so by lining the pockets of some law firm.
Sincerely,
Marilyn Carlson

This is the stealing of what belongs to another.  Just because the car company wants the domain name for itself. If they want it badly enough then they aught to try buying it. The court battle is another injust use of lawyers. No wonder they have a bad name.

To the Management,
Taking away the free will of the people because of money is a bad idea in todays society. If a group or individual sells out then it is acceptable, but not by legel muscle.  I support the creater of an asset, even if all things in this society have been said and done before. The one that owns, owns untill sold to a new owner by free will.  Dialution is only dialution when a part asset is taken from its rightful owner by unjust action.
"Do right to our world."
Respectfully yours,
R. Lasar

First come, first serve.  If the big dog(Nissan) didn't see the internet revolution coming before you did, that's their problem.  If it's your family name and you have been using for your business, you are obviously not using it for any kind of malicious reason.
Brian

I must admit that the first time I went looking for the Nissan Motor company website I typed in www.nissan.com, and I was directed to the Nissan Computer site.  This can be confusing for consumers, but if they are savy enough to surf the net surely they can use a search engine to find the Nissan Motor site- like I did.  Uzi Nissan went through the right channels to register his domain name, and he is not using it to try and take any of Nissan Motor's clientel.  The two companies aren't even  in the same industry.  I think it is ashame how corporate executives think that they have the right to any and all things that use a name similar to theirs.  What is the world coming to?
Aisha Lane

This reflects poorly on Nissan - they should pay to buy him out.
Stephen Carter

Free the internet.  If you claim it first, its yours!

Say no man to Nissan ... Nissan Motors that is ... Nissan Motors just one more example of the Japanese and other foreign commercial economic and industrial juggernaut that want to take over the United States and want to crush the common man ... let the evil nips go back to where they came from ...
Ahav Bahd Simel

I am appalled that Nissan Motors would lower itself to such measures to steal a domain name it wishes that it had acquired.  Nissan Computers has every right to retain the name that it owns (nissan.com).  Badgering and bullying will not change that.  Perhaps Nissan could locate a suitable web address using other wording than nissan.com. try <nissan-motorcars.com> which is available as of 10-22-2000.  Would this be referred to as "corporate pouting"?

Mr Nissan, has right to use his domain's name, not just because he carried this name through centuries, but at least cause he  created  his site earlier than Nissan Motors.Where was the Ni He's registered his domail earlier, and Nissan Motors should just say "oops...we lost  the opportunity"...
Melina

I feel big business doesn't have the right to own everything that they want just because they want to. The little guy has just as mush right to his part of the pie! Just because you have a lot of money doesn't give you the right to run over the little guy. Try putting the shoe on the other foot and see what it is like if you can comprend such a thing!
Pat Young

This smells like the WTO - run by large companies for large companies... if your family name isn't a justification for registering a domain name, then the message we are being sent is really that your right to something is related to how much money you have...
