Eric Goldman takes stock of the best, and worst laws affecting the internet. Your opinion may differ; I'm of the opinion that most of these laws just plain suck.|
But hey - one exception:
The ACPA targeted cybersquatting, and in that respect the law has worked well. The classic 1990s cybersquatting "land-grab" registrations of [trademarkowner].[tld] have effectively dried up, and the few cases in which a true cybersquatter has defended an ACPA claim in court generally have resulted in resounding victories for the trademark owner.
