    I read something of interest regarding leasing domains, thinkit was from this site.

    It is regarding trademarks and generics.

    So you have a generic domain that is good for leasing,
    someone comes along, leases it from you and builds a new brand.

    The new brand is successful, but instead of the company going down
    the option-to-buy route with you, they get a bit underhanded and
    decide that they can take ownership of the site because it is their brand.

    What would one have to do contractually to prevent this from happening ?

    How do you protect your rights to the domain and prove that you owned it even before the brand was created ?
