John purchased GO-DADDY-DOMAINS.COM and GO-DADDY-DOMAIN.COM from… who else… GoDaddy.com. I’m not sure whether or not John was surprised that he was able to purchase the domains, but I was!

Go Daddy appears to be quite reasonable in their response to the situation...a lot of alleged "cybersquatting" is done out of ignorance instead of malicious intent and trademark holders should not assume the worst when making an initial inquiry.

Damage control - they’ve become the laughing stock of the industry through this event anyway. Actually, I don’t find this mishap entirely surprising: While their service has vastly improved as far as we are concerned since we were finally assigned an account manager who actually knows what she’s doing, overall they seem to be cutting corners wherever they can: Recruiting the bulk of your personnel from college kids part-timing in an industry that will overwhelm them every time something’s not running entirely like their scripts and blueprints have outlined, may save them tons of money - but in the end, they, too, will only get what they pay for.
