      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.
