The abuse is registering ebay.ie, not ebid.ie. ebay is a well-known -
registered - tradmark for a well-known online auctioning site. Doesn't a
competitor of ebay.com registering ebay Ltd and then ebay.ie strike you as a
little dodgy? Granted, they're not using it, but only because ebay.com would
*eat* them if they tried.
