"Dropped domains" do not necessarily mean something to traditional Registrants (those who buy domain names) but law firms should pay attention to this subject for one simple reason: once a domain was dropped and collected on a list (the Registry below offers this service), it is "more" at risk from being registered by a third party.

  1. Call me;
  2. Change your job ;-)
