    Thanks for the info Simon. Nice catch. For those who don't know, and maybe ARI GOLDBERGER can correct us, but Ulitmate Search is a squatter outfit from Hong Kong that registered expired names, many are generic, but also many of the names contain famous marks.

    Yes, I pointed that out here quite a few months ago, including additional examples of Mike Palage apparently having the technically clueful level of a muffin, though if he did intentionally let this domain expire, it's not his fault that ultrasearch picked it up. The WLS will just further automate and increase this process of misdirection.

    Various registrars also set up sites other than their own to bring in traffic and various also use resellers. Their WHOIS contact data is also often wrong, often apparently intentionally so. -g
