Cybersquatting is defined as the practice of registering internet domains that include individual designations of an enterprise, for instance its trademark. This action may be considered both as an unfair business practice as well as an infringement of laws protecting the trademarks. Nowadays, as the Internet is getting more and more popular on a massive scale, cybersquatting is posing a threat that becomes bigger and bigger - not only for each and every enterprise, regardless of its size or recognition, but also for people engaged in public activities. Domain piracy can be committed by a legal person as well as a natural one. Most often the motive behind cybersquatters’ actions is the desire to gain money from reselling an attractive domain or blocking off rival entrepreneurs from market access.
