|Domain front running, Domain tasting, Buying millions of names for Ads, DROA (and similar organisations) deceiving name owners... The list goes on. |
There is a lot of murky business surrounding domains. It needs effective regulation that allows honest people and businesses to buy and own names in a reasonable way.
I put that part in bold...
Not so sure "buying millions of domains for ads" is a murky business practice at all.
If someone purchases a domain without breaking any laws, I don't think there needs to be regulation to tell them what to do with it.
I don't want some court telling me what I can do with my domain. If I want to put ads on it or if I want to develop it is my business.
The other stuff (front running, tasting, droa), I totally agree are shady en devours, but just buying domains is a legitimate business model. Whether it's 1 or 1,000,000.
