$1 Million Lawsuit Filed Over Alleged Typosquatter And Email Harvesting [infoworld.com]
New York-based law firm Gioconda Law Group has filed a lawsuit against self-proclaimed cyber security developer Arthur Kenzie for allegedly using typosquatting tactics to set up a bogus Web domain for intercepting email messages intended for the firm.

Kenzie has similarly set up so-called doppelganger domains to harvest emails intended for companies such as McDonalds, MasterCard, NewsCorp, and McAfee, the law firm alleges.

This shows the value of defensive domain registrations ... making sure that YOU are the one who controls the domains for predictable typos, spelling errors or variants of your primary domain name.
