To be sure.

The squatters' business model relies on most [ex-] domain owners either
paying or abandoning the domain, for lack of time / energy / money to 
litigate and/or use ICANN's UDRP process.

In the most recent case, the domain was needed to coordinate a one-time, 
long planned, non-profit public event that was about two weeks off when
the domain expired and was gobbled up by a squatter.  The event
organisers were rather compelled by circumstance.  It is often so.
