Can I request that in future you mark links like this with "NSFW"?
People could get in a lot of trouble for clicking a link like that --
e.g. I thought I'd just be taken to another "qgis service provider"'s
page.

I wrote to the registrar, Godaddy, asking to the DNS IP removal.
Let's see how they deal with this.
This prompt us to register at least the most common domains. I know it
may be an effort, but we attract lots of traffic, so this kind of abuse
is likely to happen in the future.
All the best.

Personally I don’t think it is worth doing that - you will be playing whack-a-mole trying to keep up with all the domains that come out and variants - and it is going to add up a lot of money in domain registration fees. I think it is a better strategy to do what you are doing now:

* put guidelines about the trademark use
* complain to the registrar (if that proves effective) if someone breaks it

I am pretty sure there is a Microsoft.something domain with Japanese girls on it too…

PS Luigi, next time please add NSFW or "potentially unsafe” if you point to a dodgy link :-P

Regards

Tim

All the best.

Hi,

I agree with Tim in this respect. It would be a waste of financial resources if we'd register all potential domains that may cause trouble. It would we a never-ending thing. Every year, new top level domains are added - seems to be good business for DNS registrars. Plus it will add additional confusion for the users. Let's settle on "qgis.org" as the one and only resource and let's try to complain at DNS registrars if  names with QGIS are abused. I know, it might also be annoying and a lot of work, but it's the best we can do.

Thanks for your comments. I'll continue with the GoDaddy abuse reporting
procedure and report back here.
All the best.
