Hijacker Captured in Mexico

In one of the highest profile instances of domain hijacking, con man Stephen Cohen stole the domain out from under the original registrant. This case has taken forever to resolve – the domain was originally registered back in 1994 and Cohen forged transfer papers in 1995. The lawsuit was won in 2000 and Cohen went on the run.

Four years after dodging a $65-million court judgment by fleeing the country, former online-porn mogul Stephen Michael Cohen was arrested by Mexican authorities in Tijuana and handed over Thursday to U.S. agents.
