Eric:

  Where is my factual error? Since strcmp() only returs 0 if the whole
strings match exactly, it supports my contention that one needs to divine
EXACTLY what every possible variation would be and would have to file each
separately at a cost of $90 each. If, however, it were a substring match,
that would be (somewhat) more reasonable.

  To invoke UDRP, one must begin by filing a "complaint in a court of
proper jurisdiction against the domain-name holder" and then UDRP only
deals with the dispensation of the domain once a legal resolution to the
claim of infringement is achieved. I gather that all registrars will
handle domains in such resolved cases with the .biz TLD as they have other
active TLD's--there doesn't seem to be any need for an additional step. I
don't see how this does anything but support my concerns.

  I have also been focused on the "gravity" of this situation.

  Thanks, for the last word.
