On what grounds ? Ebay Ltd. is apparently a legitimately registered Irish
company, and hence according to the IEDR rules is entitled to the use of the
ebay.ie. Fortunately, the entire Internet is not under the jurisdiction of
the U.S. courts. I would imagine that Miss Ebid registered Ebay Ltd. to get
the domain so that the American ebay would at least not be able to compete
directly on Irish turf.
