Brand Squatting

I’ll keep adding to this post.

My focus here is to point out how simple those that wish to pull sales from the work of a good brand can do so by brand squatting. I need to contact an old friend first to demonstrate how concerned big brands are about brand squatting, so I apologise if it seems a bit short presently.
