    Please sir, can we

    Registration of domain names; the cyber-squatting phenomenon; One in a Million. 11. In the United Kingdom a person who wishes to obtain a domain name does so by applying to a non-profit making company called Nominet, which provides a registration service. There is no specific evidence about whether Nominet as a matter of routine vets applications to check whether the domain name applied for is suitable. However, it seems fairly clear that Nominet does not do that, or at least does not do it in all cases. Nominet no doubt checks whether a domain name applied for has already been allocated. If it finds that the name has not been allocated the practice seems to be that the name will be registered in favour of the applicant. Further, as it appears to me, the checks must be of whether the whole name applied for, including the suffix, has already been allocated. If a person applies to Nominet to register the domain name xyz.co.uk, and that specific name has not already been registered but xyz with a different suffix has (eg xyz.com), it seems that Nominet will register the applicant as owner of the xyz.co.uk name.

    err...incorrect.....go on Nominet apply for a judicial review....err that is based on a judge reserving judgement as to whether you were subject to one
