Legal Question

Asked on: 4/06/10, 3:17 pm

The business of a friend of mine has recently had an issue. A former board member was voted out of a promotion and left the company. He has taken the former URL of the company and forwarded it to a new start-up. The board member purchased the URL, but on behalf of the original company, and upon leaving offered to sell the URL for an amount deemed unfair. Along with the redirecting the URL he also intercepts all the Emails that go to the former website and has been using the contact list from the first company, and has been cold-calling members asking them to leave and join the start-up. Both companies are registered non-profit ministerial alliance type of businesses. Are there any actions that be taken to keep him from intercepting emails and forwarding the domain to the new company or is this an issue of ethics?
