    He took 4+ years to get his product ready and is complaining that the leading company in the same space "stole" his idea.

    They seem to have stolen the domain, sure. Well, though luck, get a new one.

      They bought the domain, and he gave the tumblr account away for free.

        Indeed, nothing was stolen, I meant it in the sense that he felt tricked by them.

        Based on the wireframes and initial work, if he got a good price on the domain, he probably made a pretty good return!
