Given that the Caterpillar company (makers of heavy construction equipment) has shown a cyberzerk degree on insistence of controlling its trademarked character string "CAT" in all possible occurrences in the domain name system (to the exclusion of all other uses, such as for sites devoted to felines), one wonders if this IP insanity will lead them to oppose or harrass a prospective new .CAT domain or its registrants.
