    Trading on other's marks is no way to get rich and famous, haven't you learned anything from John Zuccarini? Just wait until they get you for statutory damages under the ACPA, then we'll all be laughing at you.

      Firstly, I am NOT a cybersquatter; secondly, I am a citizen of England and US Law does not apply here anyway, not that it is relevant anyway!

      John Zuccarini linked famous names to pornographic websites, as do many others.

      I simply link significant names to THEIR OWN websites as a FREE courtesy link... and I also only transfer the domains to the famous person or trademark holder(s) and NO-ONE else...

      There is a big, BIG difference!

      What Zuccarini did (does?) is immoral, abusive and illegal; what I do is moral, useful and most certainly not illegal.

      I am not your average Cybersquatter, because I am not a Cybersquatter... a charitable, flexible, friendly and Consumer-friendly Cyber-sitter in fact.

      Oh, and many of my domain names are available for FREE TRANSFER to the people who might wish to use them.

          That is where you are wrong, my 'friend' - clearly, you do not know your UDRP from your UPTHETREE!

          Cyber Sitting and Cyber Squatting

          "cyber-sitter and cybersquatter are the same thing"

          No, they're not. They both can involve registering famous or trademarked names, but that is the only thing they have in common. This is not illegal. Domain names are still sold on a first-come, first-serbed basis, and always have been.

          Otherwise, it is like saying a Baby-Sitter is necessarily always a Child-Abductor or a Loan Advisor is always a Loan Shark!

            Which would you prefer?

            Getting your own name for $500 with no strings attached, or buying it from a Cyber Squatter for $100,000 with no guarantee they will hono(u)r it?

            I know you will say you'd rather just register it yourself, but you simply can't do this if a Cyber Squatter has already gotten hold of it before you (and they are very quick to do so, particularly with the very controversial pre-registering of lapsed domain names, and also the rip-off Snap Names programme)

            I am simply a Consumer and Corporate-friendly Cyber Sitter, not a Cyber Squatter, which term I loathe. Squatting implies no payment for something that is not yours and domain name registration involves actually paying to purchase something for yourself!

            Think about it.

    You "allowed AOL to win the first ERDRP case".....I doubt it. You violated the ERDRP rules and you knew it, what did you expect. You're just a common squatter.
