What am I missing here? A major brand protection agency has previously released dozens of .uk names (still manage .co.uk variations) for multinational companies. Those who monitor drop lists will notice they are releasing some next week on behalf of MS. They probably charge a little more than £3.90 + VAT to manage them but even then I am sure these companies in question can afford them. How will they justify it in a DRS if they subsequently tried? Strange world..
