Misspelled domain names: pure trademark dilution: "don't do it"

If anyone thinks it’s cute to register a domain name that is a misspelling of a well known company, and then either park it to offer links that companies pay for, or come up with scams and “surveys”, leading to wake-up cell phone texts, I’d say, don’t do it. It’s trademark infringement.  The trademark holder have every right to go after “you” for trademark dilution.  I suppose most of these “sites” are hosted offshore and are harder to go after, maybe.  Yesterday, I got a good comment on my Internet Safety blog about a Feb. 27 posting on a “social survey” scam based on misspelling “Facebook”.
