Woman With World’s Smallest Waist Wins Cybersquatting Lawsuit

A domain name is a terrible thing to waist.

Cathie Jung, who is in the Guinness Book of World Records as having “The Smallest Waist on a Living Person” at 15 inches, has won rights to the domain name

Jung filed an Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act en rem (meaning it was against the domain name and not the registrant) case back in December 2009. Jung claimed that the domain name was registered by a corset designer. Indeed, it appears the site was used to send traffic to the registrant’s membership-based corset site.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court Eastern District of Virginia because .com registry VeriSign is located there. The judge handed down a default judgment this month that ordered the domain name to be handed back to Jung.

Jung was represented by Stephen Sturgeon.
