Frequently asked questions

What is domain name squatting?

Domain squatting is the practice of registering or acquiring an internet domain name with the intention of selling it for profit to someone who may have a legitimate interest in the name. It is often considered unethical and sometimes illegal, as the domain squatter is taking advantage of the demand for a domain name similar to a known brand.

How do I get rid of a domain squatter?

There are a few steps you can take to try and resolve a domain squatting issue:

1. Negotiate with the domain squatter – if the domain squatter is open to negotiation, you may be able to reach an agreement to transfer the domain name to you.

2. File a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) – If the domain name is similar to your trademark, you can file a complaint with WIPO's Arbitration and Mediation Center.

3. Take legal action – if other options fail, you may need to take legal action against the domain squatter. This could involve filing a lawsuit or seeking a court order to transfer the domain name to you.

4. Contact the registrar – the registrar is the company that manages the registration of the domain name. If the domain squatter is violating the registrar's terms of service, they may be able to take action to remove the domain name.

What is an example of cybersquatting?

Cybersquatting is a type of domain squatting that specifically involves registering and using a domain name that is similar or identical to a trademark of a well-known brand. For example, registering the domain name with the intention of selling it to an online retailer that has a trademark on the name. Such behavior is illegal in many jurisdictions and can lead to legal action by the trademark owner.
