Is Bodog a New Dog?

by Lou on August 29, 2007

Bodog is now operating under a new URL, http://www.newbodog.com/, the result of a dispute that involved their old domain name, http://www.bodog.com/. A lawsuit filed by 1st Technology, Inc. claimed that Bodog infringed on their patents, and a default judgment was issued, ordering Bodog to pay damages of $49 millionwhen Bodog failed to appear in court.

If you try navigating to the old Bodog domain name, you won’t get anywhere. But if you go to http://www.newbodog.com/, you’ll find their new web site, which they claim to be a temporary loocation. A message from Calvin Ayre (pictured right) says, “This is the result of a legal dispute over the ownership of the Bodog.com domain name. We are fighting this dispute. We are confident that we will win, but until all is settled, I do not want our battle to interrupt your play.”

Ayre added, “We are working to resolve any remaining issues on the temporary site as soon as possible, and fully expect to have our original site back up shortly.”
