Trademarked WAP names now not for sale

A would-be WAP cybersquatter says domain names he registered that include major company trademarks are not for sale after all.

A would-be WAP cybersquatter says domain names he registered that include major company trademarks are not for sale after all.

Xtra customer James Kidd told IDGNet last week that such names as wapwestpactrust.co.nz, wapvodafone.co.nz, wapairnz.co.nz and waptelstra.co.nz were " available for sale to anyone who wishes to make me an offer".

Since IDGNet approached some of the companies whose trademarks were involved - none of whom were aware the names had been registered - Kidd has contacted IDGNet to clear up "confusion" over the names.

Kidd now says that while generic names such as wappharmacy.co.nz,wapadvertising.co.nz, wapflight.co.nz and wapfilm.co.nz are for sale, "any domain names that include reference to any New Zealand or foreign company are not for sale and are not being advertised for sale to anyone anywhere."
