What are domain name decisions these days?

Live Nation is the name of the Clear Channel concerts and motorsports spin-off (formerly known as Clear Channel Spinco).  If you go to http://www.livenation.com, you will go to the Live Nation company site, but if you go to http://www.livenation.net (this is most definitely NSFW), you will get automatically redirected to a porn site.  So here are my questions:

  • Do you investigate things like this before you register the primary domain for your company?
  • Do you buy up every dot extension of your domain name when you do decide what to use?
  • How much do you spend to buy something like livenation.net if you decide that your domain name has to be just one thing?
