February 26, 2017 Update

Dear Melanie Griffith Fans,

It has been four and a half years since we posted the message below and we have not heard from a representative of Melanie, so apparently she does not want this domain. Thus, we are offering the domain for sale at this time.

We believe that the domain can be legally used for a website about Melanie - as long as it clearly and conspicuously disclaims being an "official" site or having any affiliation with her - however we recommend that you check with an attorney before purchasing the domain and proceeding to build your site.

We also strongly believe that the domain can be legally used by anyone else named Melanie Griffith for a personal website, however again we recommend that you make sure by checking with an attorney.

(A law office which specializes in domain name issues and offers a free consultation is the Law Offices of Ari Goldberger, at Esqwire.com.)

If you would like to make an offer for the domain, write jon {at} newstarbranding.com

Hi Melanie Griffith,

It appears that whoever was in charge of maintaining the registration of this domain name messed up, as the domain expired recently and then "dropped" several weeks later. It was consequently put up for auction at NameJet.com, where I purchased it for $669 on your behalf, assuming that you would want it back as quickly and inexpensively as possible. If I was a cybersquatter and intended to keep the domain or sell it to you at a profit then it would cost you several thousand dollars to file an ICANN "UDRP" action - a process which would take several months, I believe - so I hope you are pleased with what I did.

In any event, an authorized agent of yours can contact me using the WHOIS information for the domain. I will immediately change the nameservers so that your website goes right back up, and an ownership transfer will be arranged.

I know people say this to you every day, but you are one of my very favorite actresses and are obviously a very sweet person. I hope you run for President!

Warm regards,

Jon Schultz
