SANS - Survey on application security programs

Richard Branson's commercial empire has sent lawyers' letters to people who have registered domain names similar to its online off-licence, virginwines.com.

The naughty people concerned have registered virginwine.net and virginwine.org. Neither site actually has anything on it yet, which is probably just as well.

The company that registered the domains for the client said that registering copycat type names was not something it made a habit of, but that the legal responsibility lay with the customer. "It isn't something we really get involved in" said a spokesman for the company. ®
