It didn’t take long for the sharks to begin circling. It’s come to our attention that class action attorneys already smelling blood in the water have begun investigating the possibility of a class-action case against SnapNames. Blim & Edelson, Chicago based class-action attorneys, have put up a website to gather up possible plaintiff names and investigate the case.
To be clear the site states :
The listing of a company is not meant to state or imply that it committed any illegal or improper act; rather only that an investigation is or was being conducted by private attorneys to determine whether legal rights have been violated.
Edelson has recently taken on Facebook, Match.com, Lycos, and a number of other internet companies.
The site further reads :
If you purchased a domain name through SnapNames since 2005, you may be entitled to recover money. Contact an attorney today!
Also, typical of the domainer crowd, both SnapNamesClassAction.com and OverseeClassAction.com have been registered. Too bad Edelson doesn’t have an affiliate program.
