The Bad Faith Of A Cybersquatter

The bad faith of the cybersquatter is a crucial factor in determining whether or not someone should have rights to a domain name. "Cybersquatting" refers to the act of registering domain names in the hope of selling them back at a profit. Under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, bad faith can arise under a number of circumstances including when confusion is likely, when the complainant fails to disclose certain facts and when a domain name registrant has not used a domain name. These circumstances will be considered in determining whether the domain name should be returned to the complainant.
