The computer company allegedly offered to purchase the site from Mr. Dell several years ago, but the deal was never completed
Paul Dell, owner of DellWebSites.com, an online web site design service, is

If he goes in there and says "like a million other people my name is dell" who in their right mind would side with the big dell.

I'd be just fine with someone wanting to produce a microsoft pillow.
My favorit similar case has to be nissan.com althpough this old man is using 50% of his web real estate to trash the automaker so i doubt he will hold on much longer. That and his page is full of total BS and false hostory. He even had the nerve to turn down like $2million a few years back.
this website guy is 100% legit so that's a different story.
