Based on this logic, you should be able to go out and register the trademark .com of any business or individual you want and then sell it to them for lots of money, simply because their name/trademark is valuable.
But that is not how the law works in regards to domain names or trademarks.
The Anti Cyber Squatting Act of 1999 specifically made it illegal to register domain names in bad faith, meaning you could not register a domain name which is another person's name or the name or trademark of a business and then sell it to them.
