Cybersquatting is defined as the bad faith registration of a domain name. It can also be thought of as trademark infringement in a domain name. The explosion and ease of domain name registrations has also resulted in an increase in bad faith domain name registrations. ICANN has created mechanisms for trademark owners to quickly and efficiently reclaim or terminate use of such domain name registrations. The topics of domain name monitoring, preemptive registrations and the importance of a corporate domain name policy will also be discussed.
