Minds+Machines Settles Online Food Fight with Wolfgang Puck
TLD consulting firm Mind+Machines has settled its $5 million lawsuit against restaurateur Wolfgang Puck and his wife Gelila, Domain Name Wire reports. Minds+Machines sued the Pucks in September over the failed .food domain deal, alleging that Wolfgang Puck had failed to promote .food and that Gelila Puck had become "forceful, abusive, and erratic."
The original lawsuit made some pretty outrageous claims, specifically that that she was creating the “new Internet” and had told friends, acquaintances, and business people that she was the “next Bill Gates." Terms of the settlement (pdf) were not disclosed.
