Cybersquatting

Cybersquatting refers to the act of knowingly managing a domain name that matches or is confusingly similar to a known trademark.  The term cybersquatter refers to the individual or organization that engages in cybersquatting.  Some cyber-squatters also offer the domain name for sale to the trademark holder, in most cases digging themselves an even deeper legal hole.  Unfortunately there are several media sources that have incorrectly confused everyday domaining with cyber-squatting.  Although people in the know can brush it off as a misinformed reporter, there are some concerns that the general public don’t know any different and get the wrong impression.
