Wal-Mart Suit (UPDATED)

I see from the Iceland Review that Wal-Mart is suing Icelandic artist Lárus List over his registration of the domain name Apparently List showed a painting with that title in a gallery in Reykjavík a couple of years ago, and then registered the domain name. "List said the idea behind [the] artwork was to criticize American greed and cultural hegemony and that Wal-Mart’s lawsuit has proven his point."

UPDATE: More here.
