The practice was featured in a segment of NBC’s Nightly News tonight.  I hadn’t heard of it.  It is more opaque than some blends, although relatively translucent for those familiar with cybersquatting.  Looks like the practice has been around for awhile but I don’t know when “typosquatting" was first coined as a term of art.
