Cybersquatting and typosquatting (the registration of domains names infringing on established brands and trademarks) are indeed rampant. Companies must work hard to protect their trademarks and on-line brands. Our lawyers specialize in trademark protection, domain disputes, domain theft and cybersquatting matters. And yes, even we need a break every once in a while. In order to bring attention to the problem of cybersquatting on trademark protected domain names, we regularly publish a list of some of the many cybersquatters on high visibility domains.
If you want to know what a cybersquatting site might look like on your domain name, just check these links out below (assuming Microsoft hasn't forced these domains transferred to them by the time you read this post) and decide for yourself who is infringing Microsoft's trademarks.
