Peer-to-peer technology developer Aimster plans to appeal the arbitration panel's decision ordering it to turn over Aimster.com, A1Mster.com, AimsterTV.com, and AimsterTV.net to AOL. The panel found that the domain names violate AOL's AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) trademark.
Aimster CEO Johnny Deep says that the company must appeal the decision by June 1. Losing the Aimster brand might force the company out of business altogether. According to Deep the name Aimster was derived from her daughter's, Aimee Deep's nickname.
