I can't see how any of the following for example would
be protected by the policy.

eg. seek.com.au or abc.com.au or wishlist.com.au or
ipaustralia.com.au etc etc

We all have a right to register them we just have to
make sure we don't infringe on their trademarks. For
example I could register seek.com.au and launch a
search engine as long as I don't offer employment then
I don't infringe on their mark.

Now that is an interesting fact. What other
information are registrars able to get their hands on.
I thought the whois info was not available to
registrars in full and that you could only monitor
domains by availability.
