well no, there is a specifically a law in the US in regards to
cybersquating including typosquating. no such law exists here and it probably should.
so what dotster did is in fact illegal. it is not illegal here but is
against the contractual bounds of operations.

the only thing they are doing that cant be done without being or the help of a
registrar and I am sure many offer the service, is domain tasting. which
in principle I have no problem with.
