Battling Cybersquatters: New Tools for Trademark Holders

Msg#: 56 posted 6:42 pm on Feb 14, 2001 (gmt 0)

I was going to put this into Breaking, but it seems better here. The article is rather long. I wonder if you all think the new policy is going to help matters or just put in a lot of red tape. -G

The Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act amends Section 43 of the Trademark Act to prohibit bad-faith registration of, trafficking in, or use of a domain name that is a registered trademark, is identical or confusingly similar to a distinctive mark (registered or not), or is confusingly similar to or dilutive of a famous mark. The section also lists factors in determining the bad faith of a domain name holder.

The Act provides for property-like actions where the domain name registrant cannot be located and prohibits registration of a domain name consisting of a living person's name with the specific intent to profit from that name.
