Although the incentive to cybersquat
on domain names ending in .com or other ICANN-controlled TLDs has been reduced significantly by the UDRP and strict anticybersquatting law in the United States, these regimes do not deter country code domain name registrants, who usually are not required to submit to mandatory arbitration (except in cases of country code registration authorities that have adopted the UDRP voluntarily), (135) and who are not constrained by the United States ACPA (except in rare cases where traditional personal jurisdictional requirements are met).
* Reduce "cybersquatting." The use of numerical domain names reduces incentives to cybersquat
and respects intellectual property rights.
THERE won't be a better time to cybersquat
a famous name than next Monday, when hundreds of domains, once the property of US celebrity net agency CelebSites.com, go up for sale.
