Another Dot-Com Doffs The Dot

Reflecting the stock market's sinking regard for companies with ".com" included in their names, Boca Raton, FL-based is changing its name to Hollywood Media Corp.

In an interview with the Internet site Tuesday, company chairman Mitchell Rubenstein acknowledged that there is now "a stigma in the marketplace" toward dot-com businesses.

The company presumably will continue to use the moniker (formerly Hollwood Online) on its Web site, which is heavily promoted in movie theaters.
