Taking it a bit further: npm is worthless without useful modules being published. So it stands to reason that module authors should be cautious because the company that runs it clearly won't push back.

I would say that sans a cease and desist, if not a court order, they shouldn't have done anything at all. Certainly shouldn't have turned over the name to them. Better missing and breaking builds then being controlled by someone with completely different intentions.
