Should'a bought them first
> Organised criminal gangs are snapping up domain names, ready to launch rip-off ticket sites for the 2012 Olympic Games.
So why didn't these anti-e_crime people buy the domains first? Hell they're only a couple of quid a year - so grabbing (say) the first 10,000 most likely targets with the words "london" "2012" or "olympics" in the title would cost less than 1 plod's salary - and I'd guess save the work of many, from having to try and police them after they were released "into the wild".
It sounds like they are well aware of the internet! and have even stumbled across other people using it to sell tickets for other events. It wouldn't have taken much of a leap of the imagination to think one step further and try a bit of e-crime prevention, rather than bleating about it later.
