So what you are saying is that they could incur legal bills to other people by knowingly using an invalid argument? In what way would that be a good outcome unless you are a lawyer? Have you ever heard of the term "chilling effect"? "Hey there, domain owner, you can either sell us your domainname for $1 or we'll start a frivolous lawsuit using this ridiculous and knowingly invalid claim which will cost you atleast $2,000 to defend against".

Generation algorithms for software license keys is fine.
Simple generated keys stop casual sharing of licenses. Nothing stops dedicated hackers.
Why invest time and money in a very expensive license key system when all you're doing is providing the hackers with a more interresting challenge.
The problem here isn't generating keys, it's the relatively high chance of colission; it's badly generating keys.
