Cybersquatting or domain squatting is when someone registers or acquires a domain name that contains a trademark owned by another party. The cybersquatter often sets up a parked page or website on the domain name to profit from the goodwill of the trademark belonging to that other party.

Cybersquatters sometimes offer to sell the domain name to the original trademark owner at an inflated price. The party whose trademark has been infringed upon can file a UDRP dispute to fight back and protect their trademark.
