Defensive Domain Registrations: Blackwater vs.

Blackwater Worldwide has decided to change their name to “XE”. Here’s more on the article about the blackwater name switch.

So, we all know about, a currency conversion website.  My initial thought is that there’s no way that Blackwater will be able to get their hands on that domain, so what’s second best? – nope, this was registered by Yesterday. – nope, this too was registered by Yesterday. – There it is! This one’s been registered by the Blackwater group since 2004.

It should be interesting to see what happens here, I could easily see really pushing this trademark issue considering that they are making defensive domain registrations based on the news of the Blackwater name change.
