1) Warning - Bitdefender reports openstreetmapS.com as an attack page.

2) Why obtain a domain name that is so close to another name (that is 
well known)?

3) Why would you (or a firm) obtain a domain name and then offer it *for 
**sal**e* if not for making a profit?

If the above is correct then the issurer must also bear some 
responcibility for this .. if that too is parklogic.com thne I'd 
question their rights to issue domain names in the future.
