Should There Be A BSA Or RIAA For Domain Names?


Interesting idea. Out-Law.com: “Business Should Fund Domain Name Police“:
A technology law expert has called on the business world to set up a policing outfit to tackle cybersquatters. The call came as Dell raised the stakes in the fight against domain hoarders, demanding compensation of $1 million per name in a lawsuit.
Dell is claiming that a series of alleged cybersquatting instances constitute counterfeiting of its trade marks and is seeking damages of $1 million per domain name infringed.
John Mackenzie, an intellectual property and technology law expert at Pinsent Masons, the law firm behind OUT-LAW.COM, said that businesses should band together to tackle the multi-million dollar cybersquatting industry pro-actively.
