The Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse (CADNA), is a new group backed by some of the largest organizations in the world, such as Dell and Hilton. CADNA's goal is to make cybersquatting laws, including the Anti-Cybersquatting Act (ACPA), more stringent so as to deter, and ultimately prevent, cybersquatters from "stealing" millions of dollars per year from legitimate businesses. While a non-profit coalition like CADNA is a great start, especially in light of proposed policy changes to ICANN that would make it easier for cybersquatters to remain anonymous, domain name and trademark owners must still be cognizant of the ways to protect their current domains and expand into new valuable domains. Moreover, should you be victimized by a cybersquatter, you need a lawyer that can explain the most cost effective and timely method of reacquiring your intellectual property.
