Ownership of a domain name does not imply breach of a trademark registration. However, using a domain and offering a service or product that conflicts with a registered trademark is a problem.

I don't think Telstra is too worried about AAPT! Telecom has learnt the hard way what it is like to operate in a competitive market place. If Singtel goes ahead and buys AAPT and/or TCNZ, that's a different story.

I was going to post an entry trackbacking (backtracking?) to this one, mentioning Ferrit and Trade Me, but couldn't get the desired screenshot to show up in it. Anyway, you can see it here: http://juhasaarinen.googlepages.com/ferrit.jpg
