Company files for arbitration on two domain names related to “The Tonight Show”.
Just a few weeks after Jay Leno filed for arbitration to get several domain names related to his TV show, NBC has filed for arbitration on two domain names related to The Tonight Show. Leno is stepping aside from his role on The Tonight Show for his new show, and Conan O’Brien is taking over as host.
NBC has filed two separate arbitration cases with World Intellectual Property Organization for TonightShow.com and TheTonightShow.com. It’s no wonder the company wants these domain names; its current domain for the show is tonightshowwithconanobrien.com.
Ownership information for TonightShow.com is protected by whois privacy; the last available record shows a man in Turkey. The domain is parked and shows ads for “The Jay Leno Show” and “Jay Leno Tickets”.
TheTonightShow.com is registered to a Florida man. It is also parked and shows links to “Jay Leno” and former Tonight Show host Johnny Carson.
