They let the domain drop, Pirate Bay bought it as a site to ridicule them! This will be an interesting case indeed.



"Ars Technica has a follow-up on the ifpi.com domain takeover by The Pirate Bay. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, ifpi.org, is quite unhappy that the .com is now a link to the (still not live) International Federation of Pirates Interests. The ifpi.com domain has been free as soon as March of this year, according to WebArchive. Nevertheless, the "real" IFPI wants to take it to the WIPO under the accusation of cybersquatting."

The complainant should lose.

What's worse than a cybersquatter? A reverse domain name hijacker. Those are the kind of people that drive up the cost of business for everybody - buyers and sellers.
