This sporting event has spawned domain name disputes in the past. The  
issue was whether the disputed domain provided any original content.  
The disputed domain merely framed content from the official world cup  
site. The domain owner lost the case.

Which brings the larger question are domains real property? In Canada  
a dot ca domain case is won by a company with a name that is more  
similar to the domain name or exactly the domain name. The Canadian  
Internet Registry Authority(CIRA) is having its AGM on June 12. I am  
attending and would like suggestions on how I can make my attendance  
an academic project?
