There are few movie downloaders in this site:

They can record from Adobe Flash Player.
But they are not free...

Agassi, Graf file suit over Internet domain names
Suit filed in Vegas claims companies trying to benefit from tennis stars


By Steve Green (contact)

Wed, May 13, 2009 (11:08 a.m.)


TVT

Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi.


Companies representing tennis stars Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf have filed lawsuits over the alleged use of their names in Internet site domain names, alleging trademark infringement and cybersquatting.

In one suit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, Las Vegas-based Agassi Enterprises Inc. claims the defendant domain names and those who registered them are attempting to profit from Agassi's famous name, reputation and goodwill.

"Andre Agassi is one of the greatest professional tennis players of all time. He captured eight Grand Slam titles, an Olympic Gold Medal, and is one of five players in the world to win a career Grand Slam, or win all four Grand Slam titles — U.S. Open, Australian Open, Wimbledon and French Open — in his career," the suit says.

"Throughout his career, Andre Agassi was in the public spotlight not only due to his success as a tennis player, but also through his endorsement deals and television commercials. Despite retiring from the game of tennis in 2006, Andre Agassi remains very much in the public spotlight through his philanthropic efforts and business dealings, which include the branding of the Agassi name and trademark," the suit says.

But now, the suit says, companies in St. Johns, Antigua; Panama City, Fla.; and Scottsdale, Ariz.; have registered Internet domain names using Andre Agassi's name without his consent. The suit seeks an injunction requiring the domain name registrars to transfer the domain names at issue to Agassi.

The second suit was filed by SGF License LLC of Las Vegas, which represents Agassi's spouse, Graf.

"Stefanie Graf is one of the greatest professional tennis players of all time. She won 22 Grand Slam singles titles: seven at Wimbledon, six at the French Open, five at the US Open and four at the Australian Open. She is the only player to win each at least four times," that suit says.

"Throughout her career, Stefanie Graf was in the public spotlight not only due to her success as a tennis player, but also through her endorsement deals and television commercials. Despite retiring from the game of tennis in 1999, Stefanie Graf remains very much in the public spotlight through her philanthropic efforts and business dealings, which include the branding of the Graf name and trademark," the suit says.

Now, the suit charges, two companies and an individual have registered Internet domain names without her permission in hopes of capitalizing on her fame. Those companies and the individual are in the Cayman Islands, London and in Illinois, the suit says. Again, the Graf company seeks to have the domain names transferred to her company.

Both suits were filed by attorneys Michael McCue and Jennifer Craft of the Las Vegas firm Lewis and Roca LLP. None of the companies or the individual allegedly behind the domain names at issue have responded to the allegations.

ESPN Classic to Televise Agassi(s)-Henman-Clijsters Wimbledon Exo

by Staff

PRESS RELEASE

On Sunday, May 17, ESPN Classic and broadband ESPN360.com will televise live “A Centre Court Celebration,” the first tennis to be played under the new retractable roof on Wimbledon’s famed Centre Court. The three-and-one-half-hour uninterrupted and continuous telecast will begin at 9:30 a.m. ET and will include four players:



– the husband and wife team of Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, who combined for eight Wimbledon singles titles (one and seven, respectively);
– Kim Clijsters, the former top-ranked player and 2005 US Open champ who recently announced she will return to play this summer after retiring in 2007;
– and Tim Henman, the Brit who thrilled and tantalized the local fans by reaching the Wimbledon semifinals and quarterfinals four times each before retiring in 2007.

The action will include a gentlemen’s singles match, a ladies’ singles match, and mixed doubles. All matches will be one set, with a tiebreaker. The telecast will be produced by the BBC, with Andrew Castle and former notable British tennis player John Lloyd on the call.

Three years in the making, the new roof and air management system will be tested in front of a capacity crowd of 15,000. The old overhang roof on Centre Court was removed after Wimbledon in 2006. The 2007 tournament was played with no roof over the stands and the 2008 event was played with the new overhang in place and the retractable roof installed but not operable. The new roof takes up to 10 minutes to close, unfolding from each end and meeting in the middle, and requires an additional 30 minutes for the internal environment to be stabilized before play may resume. Being translucent, the roof allows natural light onto the grass playing surface. In addition, the redesigned Centre Court now has an additional 1,500 seats, bringing capacity to 15,000.

Andre Agassi Sues to Stop Three Web Sites From Using His Name



By Erik Larson


May 14 (Bloomberg) -- Andre Agassi, the retired tennis star whose name is licensed by Nike Inc. and Adidas AG, sued three Web site addresses that bear his name, claiming they were registered in “bad faith” to profit from his popularity.

The domain names, andre-agassi.com, andre-agassi.net and andre-agassi.info, should be transferred to Agassi’s ownership, the tennis star’s licensing company, Agassi Enterprises Inc., said in a complaint filed May 12 in federal court in Las Vegas.

“Andre Agassi remains very much in the public spotlight through his philanthropic efforts and business dealings, which include the branding of the Agassi name and trademark,” Agassi Enterprises, which is based in Las Vegas, said in the complaint, which claims violations of so-called cybersquatting laws.

The popularity of the 39-year-old athlete, an Olympic gold medal winner who captured eight Grand Slam titles, has been bolstered by television commercials and endorsement deals that depend on protection of his trademark rights. Agassi retired from tennis in 2006 with winnings of more than $31 million.

The companies that registered the domain names are St. Johns, Antigua-based Standard Bearer Enterprises Ltd., Panama City, Florida-based Garvin Advertising Agency and Scottsdale, Arizona-based DomainsBy*****, according to the complaint.

The case is Agassi Enterprises, Inc. v. andre-agassi.com, 2:09-cv-00849, U.S. District Court, District of Nevada (Las Vegas).

Centre Court high: Agassi had famously shunned Wimbledon for three years because his rock 'n' roll style was at odds with the conservative nature of things at the All England Club. He returned in 1991 and the following year the 22-year-old, appearing in all white baggy shorts, bike pants and untucked shirt, reached the final where he survived 37 aces from Goran Ivanisevic to win his first, and only, Wiimbledon title 6-7(8), 6-4, 6-4, 1-6, 6-4. "Last year changed how I felt about this event, in the sense that there is no tournament like it and there never will be," Agassi said at the time. "You can have a tournament anywhere in the world and it will never have the mystique of Wimbledon."
Andre in 1992


He says: "I am honoured to be invited by the All England Club to take part in this landmark occasion. I have great memories of playing at Wimbledon and to be amongst the first to play under the new Centre Court roof is really exciting."

Player profile: Andre Agassi

Andre Agassi began his professional tennis career in 1986 at the age of 16. His performance on the court earned him 60 career men's singles titles, including eight Grand Slam singles championships. Agassi is the only male player in the world to win all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal. Agassi retired from his tennis career following the U.S. Open in the summer of 2006. In 1994, Agassi founded the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation which is dedicated to transforming U.S. public education for underserved youth. Agassi is married to former tennis superstar Stefanie Graf, and the couple have two children.

FYI: ESPN Classic is airing the Steffi Sports Century right before the Wimbie Celebration. It will air at 5:30AM Pacific, and 8:30AM Eastern. I've only read the transcript, but look forward to seeing it.

I thought that the Sports Century on Andre was MUCH better than the recent show that Tennis Channel did on Andre. So, I'm hoping the Steffi one will be good also.

Katie - I hope that you read this. Did you try:

ESPN360.com

That's where Pete Bodo said it would be streaming live on the internet.
