Noticing that Verizon Wireless preemptively registered verizonsucks.com, 2600 Magazine registered verizonREALLYsucks.com. Verizon claimed that 2600 violated the recently passed Anticybersquatting Act and demanded 2600 turn over the domain. Undaunted, 2600 also registered VerizonShouldSpendMoreTimeFixingItsNetworkAndLessMoneyOnLawyers.com. Verizon dropped its lawsuit.
