More then a decade ago someone registered the domain name ronpaul.com and have since used it to network supporters of Ron Paul. A couple months back he mentioned wishing he had control of the site.
So the sites owner(s) contacted him and offered hin ronpaul.org for free. And they offered to sell him ronpaul.com, along with their 170,000 member mailing list, for $250,000.
So.. Ron has gone to the UN (An organization he has derided countless times in the past). Specifically to the UN World Intellectual Property Organization, filing a 13 page legal challenge demanding he be given, for free, both domain names.
