Tesh Settles Domain Name Suit

February 4, 2000

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Musician and former ``Entertainment Tonight″ host John Tesh has settled a lawsuit against an online business that registered the Internet domain name JohnTesh.com.

Tesh announced the settlement Thursday, two weeks after suing celebsites.com under a 1999 law that bars cybersquatting, or registering an Internet domain in the name of a famous person or company and then trying to sell it for a hefty price.

``There are no hard feeling here and we are not seeking damages,″ Tesh said in a statement. ``We wanted the name back _ that’s all.″
