The Bad Guy
We’ve been blogging at SemiWiki about how Shiv Sikand of competitor IC Manage registered www.methodics.com in frustration after a sales employee left for Methodics.

Don’t cyber squat on your competitor’s company name or product name, just compete based on the merits of your product and the skills of your sales force.
