Re: [wg-b] notification as compromise?
Actually, Thompson & Thompson and others are running searches on the WHOIS
database all the time. Even if some of the contact information is ultimately
held private, I believe that the registered domain names will always be
public. T&T could notify Nissan of whatever strings Nissan wanted --
including close spellings, other car names, etc.
Couldn't the market rather than the registry provide the service?
