Quoting from the article:

"The chief executive of .au Domain Administration, Chris Disspain, confirmed 
this morning Ansearch had been forced to relinquish the names, which 
included several trademarked names and misspellings of popular Web 
destinations.

"Some of the names believed to have been confiscated include celebrity-based 
names such as tomcruise.com.au, pamelaanderson.com.au, brands such as 
bandaid.com.au or australiaairlines.com.au and misspellings such as 
yahho.com.au."

So... how exactly is this story relevant here?  Think carefuly now...

Regards,
Kirk Fletcher
