The world of EURid.eu


Well, some might think there he is again, ranting against EURid, but then, they did ask for it. But now they ticked me off again, this time a simple domain name dispute. Someone did get the idea to register the name: malaysia.eu with as his prior rights the words: Malay and Sia, first of all, how is it possible someone has the right on the word Malay as this is a common english word and therefore no rights should be able to bound to it, and second of all, the complete name is a countries name, yes you guessed it right: Malaysia. How can any european citizen be allowed to register this domain on its prior rights on those two words ?

Well for me it is impossible to start an official dispute, as we simply can not afford the costs for a domain we do not need to have, but this is not about what i want, this ranting is about justice, and this i can not find here. I can only hope the domain falls in good hands, but with the sneakyness this company did get to register this domain i doubt that. Guess i have to inform the malaysian embassy that someone is pulling this stunt, and hope they laugh and say, it is us .. no worries…
