Cybersquatters want to take your .CO shirt
It was to be expected: Cybersquatters are taking aim at companies and registering the .co equivalent of high traffic .com domains, aiming to receive a trickle of the .com traffic.
A fine example, as we mentioned earlier, is Papajohns.co which is registered by some guy in Hong Kong. The pizza giant has yet to wake up and smack the cybersquatter with a giant slice of pepperoni with extra cheese.
Meanwhile, in a message exchange we had with Internet entrepreneur, Jason Sadler who runs the very popular IWearYourShirt.com web site, he expressed his current frustration and disappointment.
Apparently, someone registered IWearYourShirt.co using Jason’s full name and contact information – only the email address is different. This constitutes not only cybersquatting but blatant fraud as well, as the registrant is impersonating Jason Sadler.
Jason mentioned that his partner has now registered IWYS.co and he’s looking forward to receiving the IWearYourShirt.co domain through some litigation process. Let’s hope that the .CO Registry will assist Jason with that task.
