Eco-celebri-conscious cybersquatting?
Elizabeth-Taylor.com, anybody?
PopeJohnPaulI.com? [dead, alas]
JonasSalk.com? Sure, we got that…
Margaret Mead, Jerry Brown, Noam Chomsky? No problem.
Danny Thomas??Jerry Lewis???
…and don't miss the popups. (Warning: annoying and pointless.)

Whoops, forgot to absolutize those last two links:

Danny Thomas??Jerry Lewis???

It's the "Lovearth Network"—for people who LOVE ARTH.

Sounds more like a bunch of money grubbers looking to get lucky by selling overpriced domain names to a few stupid celebrities.

Most horrible "celeb" site I've ever seen: melaniegriffith.com. See Melanie in Avalon! Hear Melanie beg you to sign her guestbook! See Melanie in cornrows (!!!) as she invites you to shop with her! And don't forget that recovery journal...

Special bonus: wait for the sound clips to load for extra ooky fun!

(And, no, this site isn't a hoax, more's the pity...

I recently ran across the Friend to Friend Foundation. They supposedly register celebrity domain names and then give the names for free to the celebrities. I'm not quite sure what they get out of this, but it seems like a nice enough gesture.
