The ACPA cybersquatting definition Is similar to the UDRP cyber squatting definition. But it is broader. Under the ACPA law, a domain name registrant can be guilty of bad faith cyber squatting for the registration, use or trafficking in a domain name with the bad faith intent to profit from someone else's trademark. Under the UDRP, only the registration of a domain name with the bad faith intent to profit from someone's trademark will result in a transfer of the domain name from the registrant to the trademark owner.
