Baylor Gets Rights to BaylorBearsSuck.com

The National Arbitration Forum, which handles domain name disputes, has told owner of five websites with names related to Baylor to transfer them to the university, according to the Houston Chronicle. The reason given? The names are confusingly similar to domain names used by Baylor.

Although the owner claimed he was a Baylor alum, the domain names — baylorbearssuck.com, baylorbears.net, baylorbears.tv, baylorbears.biz and baylorbears.name — forwarded users to Texas A&M's aggieathletics.com.

The owner reportedly planned to develop the sites for alumni social networks but never had enough money.
