January 2011 marks the 10th year that I've owned MarOmega.com. I just made my payment. For some resason, they couldn't give me a whole 10 years this time, but 8 years should get me by.
As some of you know, a poser in Japan wrote a manga called Marchen Awakens Romance and called the sequel MÄR Omega in 2006. I've owned the name since 2000 and I am not willing to give it up or let my copyright lapse. Especially for a weak story with mediocre art at best.
I love manga and anime. I love Japanese culture. But I hate people who either plagerize or who aren't intelligent enough to use a simple search called GOOGLE to see if the name they want already exists!
