Selling Trademark Domains: Are listing venues guilty?

A post from yesterday regarding the listing of almost 500 “facebook” domains on TDNAM caused some serious stir. It seems that not everyone agrees about a listing venue’s responsibility regarding the trading of trademark-infringing domains. Such venues include GoDaddy’s TDNAM, eBay, Flippa.com and others.
