域名投资


Cybersquatting: Giving the Domain Name Industry a Bad Name域名抢注:赋予域名行业一个坏名声

Back in the mid-1990s when the Internet was just starting out, people of all stripes were quick to exploit this new medium. Some domain investors hit the jackpot by registering generic single-word domains, ultimately becoming dot-com millionaires. Others pursued less scrupulous opportunities and bought up trademarked domain names of prominent companies. They then contacted the company that rightfully owned the trademark and demanded a huge “ransom” in exchange for releasing the domain name to the company. This nefarious practice quickly became labeled as “cybersquatting,” the online version of occupation without permission or rightful ownership.
早在20世纪90年代中期,当互联网刚刚开始,形形色色的人们很快开始利用这种新的媒体。一些域名投资者通过注册通用单字域名中了大奖,最终成为.com百万富翁。另有一些域名投资人追求不道德的机会,买了著名企业的商标域名。然后他们联系拥有这些商标的公司,并向这些公司索要巨额“赎金”来交易域名。这种邪恶的做法很快就被标记为“域名抢注、一种线上版本的非法掠夺行为。
Cybersquatting Is Illegal域名抢注是违法的
In the United States, the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act(ACPA) was enacted in 1999 to protect trademark owners from the dubious actions of cybersquatters. This federal law prohibits the practice of registering domain names (including common misspellings) that either match or closely resemble trademarked names with the intention of selling these domains to the rightful trademark owner for a profit.
Also prohibited under this law is the practice of registering a domain name to cause brand confusion, as well as profiting from ads placed on sites that gain misdirected traffic as a result of cybersquatiing. Domain buyers found guilty under the ACPA can be charged with up to $100,000 in damages per domain name held.
在美国,反域名抢注消费者保护法(ACPA)于1999制定,以保护商标所有者来应对疑似域名恶意抢注行为。这一联邦法律禁止注册与商标近似的域名(包括常见的拼写错误域名,不论该域名匹配或接近于商标名称),并通过销售这些域名给商标持有人获利的行为。

本法还禁止注册域名造成品牌混乱的行为,以及通过抢注域名并做展示页,通过在域名展示页上投放广告获利的行为。域名持有人的行为如果违背《域名抢注消费者保护法(ACPA)》,则可以被处以高达10万美元的罚款。
An International Problem国际问题
According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an agency of the United Nations, it has received more than 20,000 complaints about illegally registered domain names worldwide since the adoption of the internationally recognized Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy(UDRP) in 1999. The WIPO reports that cybersquatting complaints continue to rise, with 28 percent more cases opened by the agency in 2010 compared to the previous year

国内,由于拼音域名的含义一般不止一个,所以终端没有办法举证某个拼音域名一定是他们品牌或者项目的名字i,比如,无法证明baidu.com的含义就是百度,可以是白度;无法证明taobao.com必须是淘宝,可以是逃宝。
