Etta James’ version of At Last is one of my wife’s favorite songs and was almost the song we used for our first wedding dance. Sadly, Ms. James passed away this morning at the age of 73 reportedly after suffering complications from leukemia.
On DNForum this afternoon, the domain name EttaJames.com was put up for sale. According to the sales post, “ettajames.com for sale Accepting offers.” I don’t believe I know the seller of the domain name, I didn’t ask for the asking price or the price he would accept to sell the domain name, and I wasn’t asked to post this thread.
EttaJames.com has a 2002 creation date, and although other extensions had been registered in the past, they are currently unregistered. I would think there are ways to use the domain name to honor Ms. James that wouldn’t infringe upon her estate’s intellectual property rights. Hopefully that’s what happens in this case. Kinda morbid though.
RIP Etta James.
