If I were you, I would pursue selling the domain to them. If they are a large company, you could potentially earn a large amount of money. If the domain is more important to you than the cash, tell them you are not interested. They have no contractual right to the domain name and, besides plaguing you with emails, can do nothing legally to reclaim it.

Yesterday we received an e-mail of someone claiming they registered it prior to ourselves and wanting to open up negotiations towards reclaiming it. > Unfortunately due to techincial problems between the original registrar (corp1) > and corp2 Ltd we were unable to reregister the domain when it was due for > renewal and it now seems that you have registered the domain. Tough for them. Question : Is there a place where I can check their claim of the domainname being registered to them prior our registration? The domain has since januari been directed to one of our websites, it doesn't generate tarffic worth mentioning, we haven't received any mail (spam included) so _if_ they ever had it registered they haven't used it. Google's cash won't help. Anyone?
