Michael Jackson estate gets KingOfPop.com domain name

The estate of Michael Jackson now owns KingOfPop.com after a legal battle.

It sued Gourmet Gift Baskets in 2016, alleging that the company’s use of KingOfPop.com for a website selling popcorn infringed on the late musician’s famous moniker.

According to court records, the two parties settled in 2017. But Jackson’s estate just got control of the domain name in recent days.

CentralNic Group Plc (LON:CNIC) provides registry services, distribution, and strategic consultancy for new TLDs, ccTLDs and SLDs. They use their in-house developed IT platforms to distribute its portfolio of popular domains to a global network of over 1,500 registrars (retailers such as GoDaddy LLC), which sell these to end users.
