Resolution of Domain Dispute
Within days after going live on www.chrisnemelka.com, a domain name dispute was filed against LEGION by Christopher Nemelka with the National Arbitration Forum, the official ICANN arbiter in domain disputes. Chris argued through his attorney Rod Vessels LEGION was violating his “trademark” and engaging in commerce. The National Arbitration Forum’s decision was released today. They have decided in favor of LEGION, ruling it has not violated any trademarks nor engaged in prohibited commerce. The domain www.chrisnemelka.com remains the property of LEGION.
We would like to thank Clarke Walton, Esq. and John Berryhill, Ph.D., Esq. for the many years of expertise which gave them the foundation to assist with this effort, along with hours spent specifically in behalf of LEGION in maintaining this web site. Although their work has been pro bono, we, and they, have still incurred debts in this defense, the least of which have been the fees for the ICANN arbitration board. We do not doubt that LEGION will yet have more legal and operational costs as time passes. A special thanks to our readers and contributors that have stood with LEGION in bringing the truth to the public. There can be no price placed on truth.

During Mr. Nemelka’s Ozeminar last month, Chris Hansen asked him why he was suing LEGION over the domain name. Nemelka gave one of his famous “it wasn’t me” answers. Rather than admitting it was his action, Nemelka said he told Vessels he could do as he wanted about the situation. Therefore, in Chris’ mind, it was Rodney who filed the domain dispute not him. I’m betting that Rodney hasn’t told Chris that any action an attorney takes on behalf of his client is the same as the client acting for himself. We can’t let this opportunity pass to remind Mr. Nemelka his specially altered DNA and enhanced intelligence as the true messenger is often woefully lacking; as is his ability to take responsibility for his own actions.
We certainly understand why Nemelka doesn’t want LEGION to own the domain www.chrisnemelka.com. We would suggest he ask the “brothers” and “Harvey The Rabbit” to take better care of him in the future and warn him when someone is planning something so nefarious as registering a domain name five years in advance. Oh well, one can’t have everything their own way can they Chris?
