Maori TV website

Just as I was posting about domain name disputes, I come across an e-mail telling me to check out www.maoritv.com which someone has registered and redirected (note that the site it redirects to has no ability to prevent this).

In fact I recall when InternetNZ a few years ago removed the ban on the seven dirty words being used as third level domain names that someone grabbed two of the more offensives ones and redirected them to the Land Transport Safety Authority and Telecom respectively. They were very (understandably) unamused that typing in www.c**t.co.nz would bring up their website.

For this domain I note it has been registered since September 2001, with the current registrant being a Damien Sampat in Glen Eden. The domain record is locked by the Registrar which suggests Maori Television have started action to get the domain.
