Was quoted in a new article on an interesting new Facebook case.


"I do think that the judge should be applauded for attempting to differentiate between types of cybersquatting," said domain name lawyer Zak Muscovitch on this part of the decision. "Like all unlawful conduct, there are varying degrees of seriousness."
"But I was somewhat surprised by where the judge apparently drew the line ... In my experience typosquatting has been regarded just as seriously as squatting on someone's correct trademark, and sometimes it is even more serious."
