Dutch hero lost his domain name

Jasper SchuringaOn the Internet, everything goes fast. Only one hour after it was publicly announced that the Dutch Jasper Schuringa avoided an attack on a plane in the US, an American registered the domain name jasperschuringa.com. jasperschuringa.nl was also registered by a company from Enschede. Domain hackers lie thus constantly in wait. The sites will probably be filled with commercial links.

Last month, the same happened to golfer Tiger Woods. Almost immediately after the announcement of his supposed car crash, TigerWoodsCrash.com, TigerWoodsAccident.com and TigerWoodsInjured.com were registered. Now that Google attaches more and more importance to Realtime-Search and that current events get a higher ranking, these domain names are often big business for domain hijackers.
