Cybersquatting: From Dennis Rodman to Bob the Builder

 On Sunday, the United Nations’  World Intellectual Property Organization “said it (had) received last year a record number of complaints on cybersquatting — or abusive registration of trademarks on the Internet” — where someone tries to grab a domain name of a business or person, for the purpose of selling it back or otherwise exploiting it.  “Cases brought last year involved names ranging from basketball player Dennis Rodman, film star Scarlett Johansson to (the) popular toy Bob the Builder.”

In the near future, we’re going to discuss a related topic: capturing deleted or expired domain names —  and the good, the bad, and the ugly of it.
