try this [theregister.co.uk]

Wow that was an interesting article. It's kind of scary if you build up a great site or spend a forture to buy that some person that does not even have any reason to dispute it can take it away using dirty tricks like that.

I say we go back to the good ol' days when if you wanted your copyrighted name you had to pay through the nose to get it. Domain Anarchy!

"BAA's choice of panellist, Isabel Davies, was immediately objected to by Mr Larkin on the grounds that she teaches on the same university course as BAA's lawyer in the case"

Not fair when countries in the third world are accused of being corrupt when, in my experience and that of the many other people, Britain is far corrupter. My best friend is training to be a lawyer and I'm staggered at how much nepotism and collusion there is in the British legal system.

The Register's article is astounding. Anybody less tenacious than Bob Larkin would have sent whimpering away. You go, Bob.

Until the kind of dirty tricks that have been used within WIPO by BAA's law firm are criminalized and enforced it makes me think that any of us who may happen to own a potentially big money domain name are just dangling out there, ripe for the plucking.
