This is not a case of cyber squatting at all but a
commercial problem for anyone wishing to set
up in another country. Some smarties think that all they
have to do is licence a US 'brand' for Australia, no
value add, no innovation, no smarts and worst of
all think that they already own the name.

And if you read the article they talk about the
value of generic domain names and mention a few
(like, etc) which is great
but the policy of Melbourne IT has always been 
to block this ability. When is a policy not
a policy? Why is not generic when
(for example) is and has been refused?

The policy is a joke when the the big money players
are taking out generic names everyday but most of the
market is locked out under their 'policy'.
