Network keyword

Hi.

I am currently handling our Company's website and our domain name. I recently received email from a (presumably) domain registrar (Asia Pacific Network Service Ltd - http://www.ansl.hk) informing us that someone else is trying to register variations of our domain name and a network keyword and are asking us if we would like to dispute this and register the said domain names and network keyword instead.

Feels like a scam since the start, and we had no intentions to register such names that we are not going to use for the foreseeable future so we declined.

But could anyone inform me what a Network Keyword is? And if such a thing exists, what and where it is used for?

Thanks
