The popular registrar GoDaddy.com is being sued for its allowing a company to register the MichaelJackson.com online casino, according to TMZ.com. 

GoDaddy.com is being pursued by Howard Mann, who claims he owns the copyright to photos features on the Internet casino website, which remains up as of press time Tuesday morning.  The mystery owner registered through GoDaddy.com, according to the suit.  

Mann tells TMZ.com he hopes to "flush out the name of the person" who owns MichaelJacksonCasino.com.  The MJ casino site appears to be an affiliate of another popular casino group. 

"While we have not seen the lawsuit, if we are named, Go Daddy plans to vigorously defend itself." The rep adds, "When customers are involved in a legal dispute, Go Daddy complies with court orders."

Gambling911.com readers might recall that GoDaddy.com turned over certificates for a number of online gambling websites when a lawsuit was brought by the state of Kentucky.  They were the only registrar to do so.  The i-Gaming sector defended itself vigorously in the Kentucky courts and ultimately won.

GoDaddy.com has sponsored events associated with gambling including the World Series of Poker.
