    Eh, read the links before you go off on a legal adventure. It deals with deflamatory domain names using a name other than your own, especially public persons.

    hey oliver

    love the website, Cant see why you have to hand over the domain name when you are saying he sucks, you would think he would want to sue for defammation not for the domain rights. Personally I cant stand all these gurus they constantly flood my inbox with the next best and greatest deal and ive had enough.

    Be careful with setting up a site for defamation purposes. Making it justified is very difficult and the onus will lie on you.

    their opinions
    No. It's designed to foster negative opinions. Big difference.
