New NY Bill Involving Domain Names

So I found this rather "interesting" bill that's been blogged by some domainers
|Relates to cyber piracy protections and the unlawful registration of domain |
names; prohibits the registration of a domain name that consists of the name of
another living person, or a name substantially and confusingly similar thereto,
without that person`s consent, with the specific intent to profit from such
name by selling the domain name for financial gain to that person or any third
party; provides for injunctive relief and other civil remedies.

A news article indicated it was "approved" by appearingly the same governor

No wonder there was enthusiasm in getting this through.
Nothing really, folks. Just posting something if you're interested in reading and
blasting away, although I'd imagine someone in New York might complain.
