Study Reveals Deficient Online Trademark Understanding

Syracuse University released a study revealing a power struggle that has been largely dominated by the larger corporations comprised of legal bullying and unjustly ‘taking’ domain names of smaller companies that have been operating under the same business name for years. The study separated types of lawsuits into categories ranging from cybersquatting, to trademark infringement battles (much of which still remains to be clearly defined by law), and name battles in which two companies (often non-competing) use the same name and want control over the domain name.
