There's just something "very corporate" about this.
1) Spend $107,000.00 of employee time developing software to track squatted domains.
2) Spend $22,500.00 of employee time or attorney time to file for patent to track squatted domains.
3) Do NOT spend $8.00 to register the domain name of the software that tracks squatted domains.
4) Use Cybersquatter Patrol software to discover that the domain name of the $129,500.00 software is now squatted.
5) Spend $4,000.00 in fees and costs to file WIPO proceeding to recover product domain name, or, file a much more expensive lawsuit to pursue BIG damages . . from a fictional ghost . . living in Elbonia.
Seems efficient to me. Probably deserves an award for such efficiency. :-/
What "award" would that be? Anyone got a good award name?
P.S. IF it's a really good award name you might want to first register it as a domain name.
