New danger in domain zones

In the early stages, the biggest problems were resellers, who were registering names of well-known brands such as Coca-Cola, Kodac, Nike, Mosfilm, and were selling it to the real owners.

For example, a popular online store that has great success and is well-advertised, without a trademark registration, may lose its owner. And someone can register a trademark containing the site address in their name and own the domain. So he can sell the trademark for the real domain owner, be careful.
