Jennifer Lopez has won her legal battle with a U.S. website operator who registered internet addresses using the star's name.
Jeremiah Tieman of Phoenix, Arizona registered domain names JenniferLopez.net and JenniferLopez.org, which directed users to a website that generated "pay-per-click" advertising revenues.
Lopez argued the sites were in violation of U.S. copyright laws because she had registered her name as a trademark in the country in May 1999.
And officials at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has ruled in favour of the singer/actress, ordering Tieman to hand over the sites to the star within 10 days.
The web addresses will be given to the Jennifer Lopez Foundation, a charitable organisation which promotes better access to healthcare for women and children.
Lopez is not the first celebrity to dispute internet domains registered under their names for commercial gain. Pierce Brosnan, Tom Cruise, Celine Dion, Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Kidman, Madonna and Julia Roberts have all issued similar legal complaints.

Scarlett Johansson "actress"actually is a clone from original person,who has nothing with acting career.Clone was created illegally using stolen biomaterial.Original Scarlett Galabekian last name is nice, CHRISTIAN young lady.Original family didn't authorize any activity with stolen biomaterials,no matter what form it was created in,it's all need to be back to original family control in Cedars-Sinai MedicalCenter in LA.Controlling clones is US military operation.Original Scarlett never was engaged,by the way
