Galliano - amid the storm he wins a cybersquatting case

Some consolation from cyberland for the now seemingly outcast Galliano - an arbitrator from WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organisation)has determined that John Galliano does have trademark rights in his name and the domain name galliano.fr should be transferred over to him.

Whether he will still have need for a French domain name remains to be seen - the Paris prosecutors are charging him in relation to his video nasty rant - which if proven could result in up to six months in the slammer and a fine of over 22,000 Euros.
