I do website design and also resell domain names to my clients through enom for their sites. (It is just easier for them if I can help them manage their domain name registration, hosting etc.. ) I have one client who snapped up all of his local competitors' potential urls. "theirbusinessname.com".
I had one of the competitors call me and I told him to call the business who registered the domain name directly.
Does anyone know what the legalities are? My client has a number of these names parked on his website - probably to spur his competitors to contact him and make him an offer. Is he doing something illegal? and as his domain name reseller, should I be discouraging him?
Thanks in advance for your insight!
