[ga] UDRP dead? Is the dot-biz registry typosquatting on AT&T's trademarks?
As reported on ICANNWatch, the dot-biz registry is redirecting ALL
unregistered domains to money-making webpages (pay-per-click, powered

Besides breaking technical standards, I'd be curious to know how the IP
constituency feels about this typo-squatting. It certainly provides a
great precedent that respondents can use at UDRP, as they point to the
behaviour of the registry itself.
I also wonder if AT&T will start putting commercials on unallocated
telephone numbers, instead of just the message that "the number you
have dialed is not in service"....
