Re: [ga] OECD Report
The thing is, a determination of 'cybersquatting' is really something no
one can make in advance. Its a question of facts on each individaul
case. So I question any conclusions made from 'volume of registration
fees'. There is a reason the system has no incentive for diligence. As I
have reminded people since 1995, only the courts have the right to act
as courts. Any other actors (registries, registrars, resellers, etc.)
are simply not courts and have no business making judgement as to
whether any particular registration constitutes 'cybersquatting'
(acutally the UDRP does not even use the term cybersquatting).
