this needs to be "no original content of value"

BTW - for those who are still wondering about the question of detecting
this in semi-automated way, I recommend looking at what nameservers are used as way to determine if it is likely to be parked domain. Not perfect but you'll find large number of such domains and if that does not do it
then looking at common ip addresses of where the domain (www) is pointed
to will help determining this even more.
