I believe one can own a common-law trademark without ever having registered anything. Read the quotation by the arbitration people in Jfergie's post above. Merely by using the name in "trade" do you have a common-law trademark, if I understand correctly. I think we might stand a good chance with the arbitration panel.

We don't have a lawyer... Do you know any that could help us with this pro-Bono? I will read into this later tonight.

What's the purpose of getting autohotkey.net domain back, only for script storage?
If yes, then just use git hosting services, they usually give 'more than enough' storage for casual users.
Note: I'm not endorsing any hosting services in this list.

So my point is, there's no benefit of paying $3k just for buying a domain name.

I don't know any lawyers that would know anything about American law (which I think the domain organisation is based on, they using the term "common law"), nor about Internet-related stuff, alas.

One reason would be that there are a ton of links on Autohotkey pointing to the domain. We don't want them to point to malware or spam or whatever.
