Panic? Or Panix?

The internet is big and bad, and this just goes to show:
In the space of about 48 hours over the weekend, Panix.com, New York City's oldest commercial Internet service provider, saw its name slip out of its control and become the center of an international cyberhunt to get it back. Whether maliciously or inadvertently, the company's main domain name - panix.com - had somehow been transferred to a company in Australia.
I wonder how many blogs get hijacked. Is there money in hijacking URLs? I doubt anyone would hijack this here musings.
