First, stop calling it "NXDOMAIN rewriting".  These guys are rewriting
everything they want, so that they can respond to your search queries,
or serve different ads to you.

Then try to opt out of rewriting for your own domains, asking the
offenders to stop doing it in your namespace, and if that doesn't
help, use the court system.  Fight your own fights, and don't expect
others to do it for you.  (Oh, in case you wonder---I can't, because
in Germany, registering a domain name does not grant you rights to
that name, even if you've been using it for quite a while.)
