Cyber squatting

I also eventually became a victim of cyber squatting. The domain unicolet.org, which I registered in 2004, has become registered to a domain parker called sedo.
Not I used that domain a lot, but it really feels bad when someone walks in, takes away something of yours and then, if you want it back, you have to pay.

The folks at AIT domains which was supposedly in charge of handling the registration and renew process of unicolet.org say they can't do anything. The simplest procedure (the Uniform Dispute Resolution Process created by ICANN) to have the domain back without paying the snatchers will cost at least 1000$.

I'll contact AIT to understand what's happened...
