[DNS] Domain monetising?

[DNS] Domain monetising?

I can see why someone *should* register domains to protect their trademark, but in reality why should they if they don't want to. If one looks at the offline world, it's not expected a company should register various permutation of their company name or brands to protect a brand or company, so why should they be forced to with domain names?

Hi Ron

Given that there are two Australian Trademarks for "Seven Eleven" registered
to 7-Eleven, Inc. from Dallas, Texas, dating from 1976, perhaps a better
question to ask would be, why didn't they register this name themselves?
