Bocanut, I don't think its all that simple. If NOT incorporated, its owned by the person's namesake. If incorporated, it is its own singular entity and the namesake can be fired by the corporation. However, if the name was purchased by someone else and legally registered ,its theirs. I'm sure lawyers could argue otherwise, but regardless, not simple.
I'm not sure how Rusty acquired Poco, but I'm pretty sure Paul is still scratching his head wondering how the heck did that happen?!!! Meanwhile, its Rusty's baby and he's been nurturing it with tender loving hands.
