just use this: mv "$f" "$chg",
when your filenames are using spaces and other weird characters

Also, I would suggest removing trailing spaces from filenames:
for f in *; do chg=`echo $f | sed 's: (somewhere.net)::'`;mv "$f"
"$chg"; done

Yes, if you notice, you could forget nifty quotes ``, usually used for
command execution.
