        Some squatters will get away with it.
On the other hand, the example you use is not a good one.  vistoria.info was claimed by Conagra, a big food conglomerate.  In the Afilias shadow database, they provided their trademark number.  And sure enough, if you check the US trademark database, that's a good registration for "Victoria", owned by one of Conagra's subsidiaries.  If victoria.info got challenged, Conagra would win. Just goes to prove that the situation's more complicated than it appears.
