==Litigation==
Mr. Schwartz became involved in a high-profile lawsuit and counter-suit when Lilly Industries Inc., claimed that his goofoff.com address violated their trademark Goof Off paint remover. Rick was informed by [[Network Soultions]] that Lilly had filed a dispute on the namespace and that he would have to litigate or face his site being placed on hold. At that time, the site was running as a travel and entertainment portal. He saw this as another example of "Fortune 500 Bullies" using their financial resources to push small business owners away from legitimately acquired and retained domains.<ref>[http://www.erealestate.com/domainking/articles.htm eRealEstate]</ref> A visit to goofoff.com today shows that the site remains in Rick's hands, and that he apparently bested a corporate giant.<ref>[http://goofoff.com/ GoofOff.com]</ref>
