Don't worry, you might get it back one day... in about 6 months time when traffic to that site dries up and loses it's reputation, they may offer it to you for sale. That happened to us a couple of years ago... 600 unique visitors per day dropped to 30 by the time we we got it back. 10 years of credibility down the drain, all because we didn't get the domain renewal notice. We fought this from the start only to find that the rules had been changed in recent years to support monetisers... it seems that the gov bodies don't care who buys just as long as they make sales. In Australia a domain name had to be a close match to the company name registering it and that company needed to be an Australian registered company. But that's not so any more.
