Stand up and fight to protect your property.
Pete Baur, owner of Pete Baur Pontiac Inc. in Cleveland, had a problem. A vendor registered Baur's dealership name as an Internet domain name, then hit Baur up for $1,500 to use his own name.
With legal help from the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers Association, Baur fought back, and an arbitration panel agreed he had the right to his own trade name.
Dealers everywhere must stand up to con men.
