Tucows Star Wars Fan Rescues DarthVader.com for Lucasfilm – PR Newswire – The Sacramento Bee

TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2012 — IN RETURN, LUCASFILM PROVIDES HOLIDAY TOYS TO NEEDY TORONTO NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN

TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Thirty-five years after the release of the first Star Wars film, the domain name DarthVader.com has found its rightful home with George Lucas’ Lucasfilm Ltd. That is thanks to one gallant, sci-fi geek at Tucows Inc. (NYSE AMEX:TCX) (TSX:TC).

“Star Wars had a profound impact on me as a child,” said Tucows Domain Portfolio Vice President Bill Sweetman, wearing a long brown robe and cheerfully tapping the Darth Vader bobblehead on his desk. “The moment I spotted DarthVader.com in a list of deleting domain names, I knew Tucows had to find a way to get this iconic domain name into the right hands. I knew I was its only hope,” Sweetman added.
