What is Cybersquatting and how can companies protect themselves? Have you ever tried to purchase a domain, only to find that it’s already taken and merely goes to a landing page trying to sell it for more? This practice you’ve just come across is called, Cybersquatting, or domain squatting. The United States has a federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which protects the registering, trafficking in, or using an Internet domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. A cybersquatter usually offers to sell their purchased domain to the person or company who owns a trademark contained within the name at an higher price.
