I have a domain: terrorism.com.au
I register a business name 'aussie anti terror'
I transfer terrorism.com.au to 'aussie anti terror' as it is a new 
'division' of my primary business
I sell my business 'aussie anti terror' and its associated domain name 

Cost me a cuppla faxes and a hundred odd dollars, to my knowledge no wrong 
doing on my behalf.

The point is there will always be wroughts to any system, I think the trick 
is to put some simple hurdles in place that make it harder for the average 
numskull to become involved. With fewer wroughts policing becomes and easier 

A six month freeze on transfer and a $50 fee would turn off the bulk of the 
scammers, why bother with .au when they can speculate in the .com domains 
cheaper and without fear of losing their money?
