Trademark in Cyberspace

Cyber Squatting

A domain name generally comprises of the Trade Mark of an organization or business. A domain name has two essential elements, the Top Level Domain (TLD) such as .com, .net, .org, Second Level Domain (SLD) which comprises of a trademark. For Example:  Here, “.com” is the Top Level Domain and “CyberCrimeChambers” is the Second Level Domain. This Second Level Domain is known as the Trade Mark.

Any person with bad faith register a domain name by using a Trademark of another person to gain unfair commercial advantage or profit is considered to be illegal.

Any domain name that is either identical or deceptively similar or uses deliberate misspelling of a registered Trademark owned by another person is also considered to be illegal.
