In what appears to be a massive abuse of their power the registrar Dotster has apparently been registering misspellings and then trying to sell them for a premium.
Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman's complaint and exhibits, which total 155 pages, include excerpts from a conversation with Dotster employee Scott Fish, who allegedly asked for $1,000 for the name BergmanGoodman.com.
"It gets a good amount of traffic right now, and would be a great domain to brand," said a purported e-mail message from Fish to a prospective purchaser.
Looks like they have their hands in the cookie jar and were caught behaving badly trying to strong arm the site holders for a premium price.
However, I'm not sure how "Bergdorf Goodman" could claim cybersquatting for "BergmanGoodman.com" unless the little twerps at Dotster hadn't tried to sell them as alternate domains as Bergdorf and Bergman are NOT the same unless you're just stupid. It's somewhat of a bad example otherwise.
Makes GoDaddy look less evil about now, just don't spam on GoDaddy.
