And it would be unbelievably stupid as well. Imagine that one didn't offer an equivilent gTLD 
domain to a client who signed up for a .com.au and some time later they found that the gTLD 
was being used by their competitors or even more likely they wanted to sell stuff or services 
overseas. They'd be really thrilled to learn that they could have protected their brand for 

But such stupidity is rife. Had the providers to our clients referred to in the Ches T. thread 
been doing their jobs, the current difficulties our clients are having in relation to their brands 
would have been avoided.
