Ryanair wins battle to take control of I Hate Ryanair domain14 October 2010
Disgruntled passenger Robert Tyler has been ordered to hand over his web creation, ihateryanair.co.uk, to the airline, after running commercial ads on the site.
He set up the site in February 2007, specifically to criticise the budget carrier, which he describes as “the worldâ€™s most hated airline“.
Ryanair took Tyler to the domain name tribunal, after lodging a complaint about the site in April. The airline claimed that the ihateryanair site took unfair advantage of its name and held defamatory content.
