I simply find it amazing that they never approached you before they started this venture, how incredibly na´ve/dumb!
Vivendi didn't think to check that the name they chose for one of their ventures was available either ( they had bought the dot fr..but someone else already had a similar service operating out of a cyber-cafe , meant they were in a "trademark problem"
story in French ..well known amongst French domainers :)
Outline of the story and some others re "branding" and domian names, in English here, [cyberwise.no...]
Vivendi paid nearly 4 million dollars to the owner of the original "name" and "trademark" so that he wouldn't sue..if he had ,he would have won, and probably made more than 4 million, plus Vivendi had a "deadline" for launch..
