Unfortunately, given the large number of threats we received around our
trademarks and domain names we as an organization are left with two
choices.. Register defensively our brands or litigate for every breach..
Defensive registration is cheaper that even the UDRP process.

While I continue to encourage the organization as a whole to stay within the
established brands/domain names these threats mean I have little choice
unless auDA enforces the license conditions and outlaws the trading in
domain names...

Personally I agree this is a public resource and if you need the resource
you should be able to license any name you require as long as you have a
legitimate purpose and your not infringing a trademark..  I dont hold to
this concept pushed by some that domain names are real estate to be bought
and sold, that only serves the registry/registrars and generally does a
dis-service to the general community

You've got a domain name already; why do you need another? Just subdomain
what you've got...,, ...
