    Sorry, not a real dispute but wanted to know what the situation would be in the following made up scenario

    if someone owns ehorse . co . uk and the domain ehorse .com is an established site would the dot com owners have some kind of legal right to restrict you using the domain for a similar purpose even though ehorse has only one real application (horse related information)

    all a made up example - apologies to who ever owns ehorse.

    If they're big enough... Game decision for example...

    But it all depends on the 'experts'... myspace appeal, eg..
