A domainer in Singapore found himself subject to a rough arrest that resulted in him having broken bones and teeth when police forcibly entered his apartment, when all he claims to have been doing was protecting his trademark.
According to a Domain Gang report Jiaming Sim applied for the domain name during the .XXX Sunrise period and four hours later police entered his apartment, confiscated his computer equipment and put him under arrest.
