Interesting. I am off to purchase a few (insert city here)examiner.com addresses.

I'd proceed with caution. That's called cyber-squatting and you'd most likely end up in federal court.

If I were to somehow acquire and park on Nike.com that would be cybersquatting, but he has no more right to terrehauteexaminer.com than I do. Of course, if he has already trademarked the name then it is a different story.

1). By virtue of the fact that they've registered several hundred examiner.com addresses.

And.. 2. You would be using the word examiner preceeded by a city name.

Any federal judge would side with them as it would be simple to prove malicious intent.

Go here if you really want to know more.
