Company names and Domain names

Island bay Plumbing Limited has the domain names  http://islandbayplumbing.co.nz/ and http://www.island-bay-plumbing.co.nz/.

The company name Island Bay Plumbing Limited was registered 20 odd years ago. Yet somehow the domain name  http://www.islandbayplumbers.co.nz/ can be allocated to an entirely different organisation, albeit they are plumbers that service wider Wellington.

Fortunately we can use the Dispute Resolution Service (DRS) to lodge a complaint http://dnc.org.nz/complaint . Only requirement is to complete the paper work, and maybe consult a lawyer and maybe nominate a representative…

Fair enough I suppose but for the average self employed small business quite a daunting process I suspect.
