They aren't going to give up Playboy.com but they are probably going to
have to purchase playboy.xxx anyway.

What bothers me is that most companies are now going to be forced to
purchase .xxx domains simply to keep someone else from buying it and
sullying the company's image.  So it is an instant cash windfall for the
domain registrars.  

There was no reason why we needed this.
