Your IP

How is your IP?

No really; how is your intellectual property? Is it safe? Have you secured it?

When a leading figure in a political dynasty running for the office of the most powerful man in the world neglects to look after his IP, we should all consider that we may have our own weaknesses.

Jeb Bush is the older brother of George W Bush, and the son of George H Bush, both former presidents of the USA. As is required and done, he registered an internet domain (www.jebbush.com). These things require periodic renewal payments.

You guessed it: Donald Trump spotted the ommision, bought the domain name, and now www.jebbush.com reroutes to www.donaldjtrump.com.

Not even in the movies…

So really; how is your IP? If that kind of kindergarten tomfoolery can happen in the pursuit of such power, what chance for us mere mortals?
