    EU got cut off of many US websites due to GDPR, but some are getting back, for example BestBuy.com, most recently I was able to visit the US site. Before I could visit just Canadian or Mexican site. Another examples Lowes.com - access denied, Homedepot.com - works fine from EU.

    They probably block ip’s from countries they don’t do business in. Makes sense, they dont do business where I am at the moment, so I get forbidden also.

    It would sure be interesting to know more about the number of defensive style registrations that take place, but I don’t know how you would research that!

    Your comment reminded me of the case of the acquisition of vacation.rentals.

    The new owner, Mike Kugler faced a challenge. HomeAway, probably his main competitor, had previously acquired the category killer name VacationRentals.com (as part of buying the established business.) So he needed a super premium domain to be in the game.

    Domain Name Wire said this about HomeAway buying the dot COM:

    “The CEO of the company in 2007, Brian Sharples, indicated that it was mostly to keep it out of its competitor’s hands and a big part of that was the domain name.”

    Vacation.rentals domain name sells for record $500,300


    Look forward to the write up about unused domains.
