John Holmes Domains Returned to Rightful Owner

(SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, CA) -- Laurie Holmes, The widow and sole heir of John Holmes announced today that she has regained ownership thus far of 13 John Holmes domain names in different variations. Some of the domains recovered include: JohnHolmes.com, JohnHolmes.org, JohnHolmes.info, FreeJohnHolmes.com, JohnHolmesPorn.com, FreeJohnHolmesPics.com, JohnHolmesMovies.com, JohnHolmes.us, JohnHolmes.biz, HolmesJohn.com, JohnHolmes-Pictures.com, JohnHolmesGallery.com and JohnHolmesPhotos.com.

"The Laws of the Internet have changed and it is important for people to know this. I teamed up with Steve Anderson of Anderson and Shippey located in New Port Beach California, a law firm with a great deal of expertise in Domain Dispute and other similar subjects. Through Anderson and Shippey I have been able to recover these domains with "Cease and Desist" letters. Steve Anderson takes his job seriously and has recovered many domains for many celebrities. For example, "You can sell Campbell Soup in a store but you cannot name your store Campbell Soup because Campbell Soup is a trademarked name." These same rules apply to the Adult Industry. You can sell John Holmes videos but you cannot name your store John Holmes because John Holmes is my intellectual property. Intellectual Property is the same thing as a Trademark. It is important to get this word out to my fellow porn stars and friends. Just because you signed away the right to a piece of work doesn't mean that you have signed away your right to your name and image. With this in mind, be careful what you sign in the future.

"I will not stop here, I will continue in my efforts to cease ownership of anyone out there using the John Holmes brand name. John Holmes has become a worldwide icon and is the property of The John Holmes Estate. As the Executor of Johns' Estate, it will be my honor to build an empire truly fit for this King, whom still remains to be - Larger than Life!
