A fair point Thomas. It just demonstrates that the rules can - and have been -
abused though. The CEO of ebid.ie has admitted ownership of ebay.ie, so it's a
clear-cut case of abuse. I wonder how many more "companies" Miss Wossname has
under her belt.
I hate that. I have lots of dotCOM domains, but none of them are trademarks or
brandnames (as far as I'm aware) and I'll eventually find a use for them.
Registering trademarks and brandnames is just plain cybersquatting, and these
people should have the bloody things taken back off them.
