Clever, but that company will be losing the domain. Classic picking a battle that you can't win. ACPA iirc directly addresses things like this.

In determining whether the domain name registrant has a bad faith intent to profit, a court may consider many factors, including nine that are outlined in the statute:
1.the registrantís trademark or other intellectual property rights in the domain name;
2.whether the domain name contains the registrantís legal or common name;
3.the registrantís prior use of the domain name in connection with the bona fide offering of goods or services;
4.the registrantís bona fide noncommercial or fair use of the mark in a site accessible by the domain name;
5.the registrantís intent to divert customers from the mark ownerís online location that could harm the goodwill represented by the mark, for commercial gain or with the intent to tarnish or disparage the mark;
6.the registrantís offer to transfer, sell, or otherwise assign the domain name to the mark owner or a third party for financial gain, without having used the mark in a legitimate site;
7.the registrantís providing misleading false contact information when applying for registration of the domain name;
8.the registrantís registration or acquisition of multiple domain names that are identical or confusingly similar to marks of others; and
9.the extent to which the mark in the domain is distinctive or famous
