Believe it or not there are many. To many to list. However regardless
of that, to prevent speculation in Domain Names is, 1.) Not preventable,
realistically, 2.) Inconsistent with time honored business practice's of

as speculation is already happening presently and thereby dictating
a business model that is in no way illegal.
