Trademarks, new gTLDS & Cybersquatting

Over 1,000 new gTLDs – top level domains – are now fully integrated into the domain registration system.  These new top level domains have made lots of word which were unavailable as .com domains available for registration. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in claims of trademark infringement and cybersquatting.
