Cyber squatters

Wanted to buy some domain names for a few websites I had in mind. Checked with my favourite domain registration company today and found that all of them (.com, .net, .org) had been taken up. One of the names was available just a month ago. Now it was only available with a .ws or .tv or .us and I want it with the .com.

The most annoying thing is that none of the domain names had live websites. They were up for resale at ridiculously high prices.

Cyber squatters make it their business - registering domain names and then reselling them for a big profit. I guess they have a right to do so, but they are really annoying like hell.
