Tucows Star Wars Fan Rescues DarthVader.com for Lucasfilm

IN RETURN, LUCASFILM PROVIDES HOLIDAY TOYS TO NEEDY TORONTO NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN

TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2012 – Thirty-five years after the release of the first Star Wars film, the domain name DarthVader.com has found its rightful home with George Lucas’ Lucasfilm Ltd. That is thanks to one gallant, sci-fi geek at Tucows Inc. (NYSE AMEX:TCX) (TSX:TC).

“Star Wars had a profound impact on me as a child,” said Tucows Domain Portfolio Vice President Bill Sweetman, wearing a long brown robe and cheerfully tapping the Darth Vader bobblehead on his desk. “The moment I spotted DarthVader.com in a list of deleting domain names, I knew Tucows had to find a way to get this iconic domain name into the right hands. I knew I was its only hope,” Sweetman added.

Tucows quickly donated the DarthVader.com domain name to Lucasfilm. In exchange, Lucasfilm agreed to make a donation to the Tucows Elves Project. This annual charitable effort is organized by Tucows staff and provides toys to the children of lower-income families in the Parkdale neighborhood adjacent to the Tucows Toronto office.

“We’re thrilled to be the new owners of DarthVader.com,” said Miles Perkins, Spokesperson for Lucasfilm, “and we are even more excited about supporting such a worthy cause. We regret having to refuse Bill’s request that we deliver the children’s toys in the Millennium Falcon. It was heartbreaking having to explain to him that it’s not real.”

The domain name experts at Tucows regularly rescue and donate valuable domain names to individuals and organizations the company admires. Previous domain name rescues and donations include FreddieMercury.com, PhilCollins.com, and KidneyCar.com.
