The practice that has come to be known as cyber- squatting originated at a time when most businesses were not savvy about the commercial opportunities on the Internet. Some entrepreneurial souls registered the names of well-known companies as domain names, with the intent of selling the names back to the companies when they finally woke up. In technical parlance, this is called cyber squatting. This book is a humble effort to place a clear picture regarding this scenario by taking into account the national and international efforts and attempts to curb this and at the same time also to make some recommendations that the author feels would make the present system more effective and result achieving and result oriented.

MATERIAS: cybersquatting, Domain Name, Internetrecht, international theories and principles, landmark case laws
