Question Can you explain the new laws against cybersquatting?

Question There is a new federal statute and domain name registration policy. Both protect against cybersquatting, registering a domain name to force its purchase by another. A claim can be pursued under the new policy quickly and inexpensively. However, you must prove that the domain name was registered in bad faith, but there is no right to force the registrant to disclose the relevant details. When compulsory disclosure is needed, a federal court lawsuit can be filed under the new federal statute.
