    In your case, you are neither known by any of those names nor were you authorized to register those domain names by the rightful owners. therefore, you are a cybersquatter and you will be taken down. buh-bye.

    User #2810 Info
    So (for just one example category) are the many permutations of living and non-living Beatles names you have registered your pseudonyms, aliases, fictional characters or trademarks?

    This whole thread is getting extremely boring, even for me, but I'd like to reiterate a point. How expensive would it be for GNR to have had software in place, or even to put it in place now, that parses for someone using 'the' as a 3LD, or someone dinging their credit card for 241 .names (how many of us can claim to 'commonly' be known by 241 names, it's absurd), and then waking up a human to have a closer look (yes, I'm aware that some of this would have to be done at the registrar level). If they then see that the same person claims to commonly be known by each and all of the last names of McCartney, Lennon, Harrison, and Starr, and for all I know, Best, one needn't be employing rocket scientists to figure out that something is probably amiss.

    Instead, they've taken Adrian's money, and they will now probably seize the names, but by having to go through at least as much time and effort (probably more, and with some loss of reputation, for the registrar, the registry, and ICANN) as if they'd dealt with it in the first place, so no-one really wins. I'm still trying to decide who the bigger dumbass is here, Adrian, GNR, or ICANN. -g
