Dear:

Thanks for your reply
We are the company which can protect the foreign corporation's benefit resource on Internet.

We knew you have registered madshrimps.be and own the intellectual property (own the trademark). so we informed you the matter as you have the prior right to register. But now JianYe Co.,Ltd wanted to apply for other domains(not madshrimps.be) you have not registered yet.

Different suffixes stand for different meanings,
for example :.cn stands for "China",.hk stands for "HongKong",.tw stands for "TaiWan",..biz stands for "Business".

the domain name registration is justice,equitable,open. anyone can register freely.In order to keep the Internet resource from being registered by other party. we want to know whether you will protect these .Only after doing these,it is useful for your compay and it can avoid the infringement caused by the other party's utilization of your Internet resource.

Now we are checking these,.And we would like to give some suggestions:
1. you can register in advance for proctection.,we will sent application form to you .
2. if you don’t need,we will register for the other party according to registration procedures.

Following is google case, hope it can help you understand this kind of issue on internet.

In Asia Domain Name registration scam I described a scam by a Chinese or Hong Kong company to scare people into buying lots of extensions of their existing domain name at outrageous prices. Now the same folks seem to be back with a similar email and similar phone number. I’m posting the contents of this latest email in the hopes of saving others from the same scam.
