"IP owners face growing domain name danger" according to Managing Intellectual Property. MIP says that WIPO received more complaints (1,823) than in any of the previous 5 years. The articles goes on - I'd love to see the stats for DRS - since if that too has risen then the domain tasting aspect can be discounted. Further , if a domain has expired, why is there an assumption that the regsitrant is a cybersquatter? An alternative explanation may be lawyers chasing fees for more of these cases... Anyway, the suggestion from the guy at WIPO that UDRP needs to be changed (for which I suggest you read "made more IP rights holder friendly") is the bit that alarmed me most.
