If Nissan Motors persists in this matter, I will have owned my last Maxima, and both mine and my wife's will be traded in next spring on another make. In addition, my wife, who writes an Internet column for a large East Coast magazine will likely to have something to say to her readers as well.
Mr. Nissan got there first, Leave him alone.
Howard Bernstein

I have purchased a number of Nissan automobiles over the years and currently have an Infinity. I am outraged by Nissan Motor Company's actions towards anyones right to use their family name and draging him through the courts to defend this right. The Infinity lease will be over soon and so is our interest in driving another one of their cars!

Message to Nissan Motors:
I am offended by your grasping lawsuits re:  www.nissan.com.  The whole point is Mr. Nissan and his computer company saw the promise of the InterNet and got there first.  If you've got to have the name, then buy it from him.  If he won't sell, then come up with a good name on your own!
I shall not consider purchase of your products until you cease and desist from this bullying activity.
Lee Jones

What a load of crap.  If Nissan Computer owns the domain name, then they own it! Period.
I certainly won't ever buy a Nissan vehicle. Count on that!!!!
Jeff Dupy

This is a crying shame what is done about domain names. What Nissan is trying to pull? Is this to say that anyone with the last name of Nissan is going to be sued by the large car company?? If your born with a name you have a right to register the domain for it!
It's funny how this Nissan issue happened right now. Right when I am shopping for a car! Well I will definately scratch Nissan from my list...
Melissa McClure

With this kind of corporate bully boy tactics going on, it's no wonder there's growing anti-capitalistic feeling in the world. I will make your outrageous act of domain piracy gets maximum exposure on all my websites. As for Nissan motorcars.. forget it, I'm buying european.
Kourosh

I just want to say that I support your cause.  I myself own a Nissan car but believe that the small buisness owners should be able to not be bullyed by the big companys.  All company's whether they be big or small started somewhere. 
Sincerely,
David Hanzal

Nissan Motors is not doing the right thing.  I am of the opinion that Japanese are a respectable community. Please do not harm my opinion. I hope your company should remove the lawsuit unless people will call you, CORPORATE PAKISTANIS / CHEATERS / GOONS / LOOTERS / THUGS.

The first time I even heard about this case I was bothered. This is the classic Big Industry vs. The Common Person. For one thing, last names themselves should not have the ability of being copyrighted. I have to sign my credit card receipts, do I one day have to worry about copyright infringement of Calhoun First National Bank? This isn't a case of someone getting Nissan.com in order to get money from them. This is the case of a man and his last name. Come on Nissan Motors, don't lose all your business.
Curtis Calhoun

I dont like Jews but i will defend there right to the use of there own name.
Graeme Greening

Dear Sir/Madam,
I don't think you have to be much of a discriminating reader to observe that Nissan Computer Corp. and Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. are two entirely different entities. The most I could see happening is that someone may ask if they are related and the answer is no. End of story. What's the big deal?
Keith Wilson

First come first served. He has the same right's because of his name as the big companys!
Andrew Norton

This is another example of a big company trying to stomp on the small one...  Nissan Motor - this will get you a lot of bad PR! Watch it! It's your problem if you missed the boat on getting your own domain name. Nissan Computer is a family name that has been used for generations. Just give it up. It's not like it was a website established to give you a bad name, or to make you pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy it, like other companies have been forced to do.
Rivkah Tuttle

It is this sort of arrogance that causes the public to mistrust large corporations.   Nissan Motor's attempts to prevent an honest businessman from using his family name for his website are atrocious.  Whether or not Nissan Motors wins in the end (as they probably will - even if Mr. Nissan wins the court ruling, he will most likely be forced out of business from legal fees),  their public trust has been joepardized.  Is a stolen domain name worth that much?
J. Barrows

I think that if a person register a domain with his name (example: Bill McDonalds had registered mcdonalds.com) i think he or she have the right to have that domain name. If some corporate buisness wanna have this, i think they have to buy it from this person.  The kind of hijacking that i read about here is horrible.  But the fact that american federal courts accept this horrible behaviour tells more about the status of the american constitution...*sigh...*
I live in Norway, and if a big company had tried to pull a stunt like that, they would have been punished by the law.  So you see....i'm happy to live in a nice country like Norway where life is normal, and not like a comedy....
Haakon

Does the fact that larger companies have more resources--and influence through lobbying--make stealing a registered name acceptable?  Nonsense.
Kevin Collins

Why bankrupt small companies? The World Wide Web is supposed to be for everyone, not just corporations. Show some altruism.  Character is destiny.  In every aspect of life, your nature shapes your experience. In the center of the crowd and in unguarded moments when no one is watching, your choices reveal who you are.

Tell this isn't true Nissan Motor. Not very good public relations.
Bob

Even from France, we are shocked to hear this, although we have been used to hearing about the stupidity of American Court cases. I'm forwarding this story to my Dutch friend who will no doubt publish it in his Internet News Bulletin ! Shame on you, Nissan Motors !!! You used to be big ! You have started your own downfall out of greed and stupidity !
