Traverse Legal's attorneys combat cybersquatters on behalf of trademark owners every day. Yet, most companies do not realize that their trademarks and brand names are under attack, their web traffic is being diverted to competitors and their customers are being deceived.
How prevalent is cybersquatting and typosquatting? Check out www.wipo.com, and then compare it with the World Intellectual Property Organization's web site www.wipo.org. Ironically, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center handles a majority of the UDRP domain dispute arbitrations internationally. The very organization which is invested with the authority by ICANN to resolve cybersquatting and typosquatting disputes internationally under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy is, by all appearances, being cybersquatted.
