Alberta Premier wants his Domain

CBC News reports that Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach is defending his decision to send lawyers after blogger Dave Cournoyer who owns the domain name edstelmach.ca (note: that domain previously redirected to his blog daveberta.ca, now redirects to a wikipedia entry).

Reading the blog, it seems like Mr. Cournoyer is not willing to comply with the demand letter sent by Premier Stelmach’s lawyers.

Actually, I thought it an interesting demand letter, laying out a number of potential causes of actions that the Premier may have against Mr. Cournoyer, including misappropriation of the Premier’s personality (see my previous post on that type of action). A pdf copy of that letter can be found here.
