Randazza said, “Is there something sleazy about buying the name of a hurricane in the hope that it will become a natural disaster thus making your domain name worth something in the future? Yup, but there’s nothing illegal or irregular about it.”

Andrew Allemann, Mark Randazza and Andrew Rosner featured in a article that helps clarify cybersquatters from Investors but you then have the other guys who buy disaster names and impersonate a relief agency.
