The Jamaica Intellectual Property Office has stated that it will block internet domain name registrations containing the names of its Olympic winners. The JIPO organization will block all sales from any .com domain that is not owned by the Jamaican athletes themselves. The athletes include Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell and Veronica Campbell-Brown.
One British company was auctioning off the domain name UsainBolt.com, but has now cancelled that auction. Jamaica is trying to prevent cyber squatters from taking advantage of the now famous Jamaican athletes.
