Just read this on Domain Incite re savethechileren.org. These folks been around since 1930. And sure some people run a few scripts and registered a few variations.. Normally when you get hit with a WIPO you just suck it and take your loss when it is an obvious case that you not gonna win it. However the owner of save-the-children.org had a different view Smilie: ;)

As you may be aware, with the explosion of the internet and domains, there has been a scramble by speculators or entrepreneurs to purchase popular names or names which we believe may become popular, so we can resell them for a profit. In fact, many businesses will buy numerous domain names that are similar, or may be abbreviations or acronyms, or with different suffexes [sic] in order to get them off the market and prevent somebody else purchasing it.
After consulting with my attorney, and in the best interests of a speedy resolution, I’ve been advised to offer to sell my domain to your client.
I am unwilling to give it up for free since I purchased it. However, I am willing to sell it, and I am asking $2,500.00 for my website.
