According to this thread on Namepros, Swapnames.com was hit with a trademark infringement lawsuit and will be changing their domain name to Zuho.com. A link to the filing can be found here.
Wow, this sounds like SnapNames is going gangster on its own brothers.
***UPDATED BY ELLIOT*** These two companies aren’t related.

Yes, I know they are unrelated. My reference to “going gangster on its own brothers” means that it’s one (big) domainer going after another (small) domainer. It’s like infighting within the family and that’s not good for the industry.
