Cybersquatting can be an expensive exercise (if they find you)
Wall Street Journal’s law blog reports that a US domain registrar, OnlineNIC, was found by a federal court in California to have registered at least 663 domain names infringing Verizon’s trademarks, in a default ruling. Verizon was awarded $50,000 per domain name registration, so the total amount climbed to the area of $30 million. However, it appears that Verizon have yet to locate OnlineNIC to claim the money.But even if they don't, they seem to be holding a strong card to play against other mischevious registrars.
