    Not really. Most big companies register common mispellings of their names, if they can get ahold of them.

    I can understand a company covering themselves with the miss spell domains. But, when I see things like this.. which should go back into the general pool for anyone to register, when they HAD expired at one time and then now a registrar has them. Why? to auction them? To use it as a tool in their 'drop~snap' size biz? To lure people to bid on the name? Insighted requested!

    Um registrar is the registering agent used, not the domain owner.

    Not so long ago I remember reading about google unleashing their lawyers onto owners of mis-spelled google domain names. I think the article may have even mentioned googel too. See the problem is when someone misuses someone else's trademark to profit from it. Which is the case with the mis-spelling of google domain name that this article was covering because what did the owner of the domain do? Put up a pay per click links page which is misleading and passing off a search engine.
