If the domain is rented, surely it returns to the ownership of the registrar at the time of renewal (as mentioned above) otherwise the registrar, not the perpetrator of the crime, is being penalised ...

If I lived in a rented house and committed a crime who would then own the house, the rented tv, the Complete Anthology of Great Works by J K Rowling pamphlet borrowed from the library?

Sounds like a dangerous precedent to set ...
