That group is doing both the 2 problems we mentioned. But most cybersquatters don’t do that. In the long term those criminals that install spyware will have their business shutdown.
As for the regular cybersquatters, if they don’t do any of these “trademark infringement, dilution, and counterfeiting” they aren’t really doing anything against the law. They are just upsetting us, and that isn’t a crime.
This week I tried to register a domain with the word charity. I tried 100 combinations! All the good ones were registered, and most were just parked for years. That really is annoying, but they aren’t doing anything against the law so it was just what I was saying. I can’t compare them to virus and spyware criminals. They are just players, like in the stock market.
Today I need domains that I will never get. I should have registered them some years ago, when they were available, but back then I didn’t want to register domains that I wasn’t going to use right now. I didn’t want to be a cybersquatter. And now, if I want to buy that same domain, people ask me hundreds or thousands of dollars.
I was the dumb guy! From now on, I register domains for future projects, or they will be registered and used for speculation.
It’s a tough market! So I’m gonna take 2 days off. Really need some rest…
