Cybersquatter says:
      University said such companies were "fools'' because they failed
      to look after their own propriety rights properly.

Thus admitting that he believes these organisations have some "right" to
the domain name, which (IANAL) makes his action extortion - by depriving
them of this "right" which he expects to become a "money spinner".

What an idiot.

Nick.
