It might help the current owners of this domain if they know, that the once popular german Band "The Rattles" also had a song called "We will rock you". They also had a song called "Love of my life" in the 60s.....

Globalsoft is the massive (and evil) corporation that dominates "Planet Mall" - part of the story line in the ongoing "We Will Rock You" musical by Queen and Ben Elton.  Globalsoft is responsible for banning live music, instruments and songs, and instead feeds computerized identikit pop to the masses.

If they wanted it, why didn't they get it?  I can see where they're coming from, but the WWRY site is on a .co.uk page.  So if it was an issue, why ddint they just buy both domain names?  And use one?  Would have solved the problem... is the phrase trademarked?
