Domain Name Front Running

As if the domain name system wasn't screwed up enough as it is. Now we may have to deal with Domain Name Front Running. Although ICANN has not seen this practice in the wild, it has issued an advisory on the practice. According to DomainTools Blog, Front Running is a practice of stealing someones domain name search queries and registering the domain name before the original person can register it. Let’s say you find a domain that is available for registration. Well if someone steals your idea and registers it before you it is like holding you hostage this is Domain Spying or Front Running.
