New Infographic is Out Now: Domain Names and Cybersquatting

Cybersquatting is the practice of third parties registering earlier existing trade marks as domain names, without the authorisation of the trade mark owner, in order to obtain a financial revenue and it is one of the most significant challenges related to internet fraud.

European IP Helpdesk team has just published a new infographic that sums up key IP aspects related to domain name ownership and registration. Plus, it explains the issue of cybersquatting and the available dispute resolution mechanisms that may be used by SMEs to protect their businesses online.

Here you can also find our previous infographics that cover a variety of IP-related topics and issues "in a nutshell" giving you a quick, straightforward overview of the most important aspects to consider.
