Focus on Cybersquatting: monitoring and analysis


 

Cybersquatting involves bad faith registration and/or use of another company’s trade mark or other distinctive sign in a domain name, without having any legal rights or legitimate interests in that domain name.

Rights owners have often expressed their concern over cybersquatting, particularly since the expansion of the generic top-level domains (gTLDs) begun in 2012.

The purpose of this study was to quantify the phenomenon of cybersquatting and to describe the methods and the business models employed by cybersquatters, thus providing a basis for fighting the phenomenon more effectively.

The study benefited from cooperation with EUIPO Observatory stakeholders and relied on data and knowledge shared by brand protection experts from the selected brands.
