This article shall begin by outlining the domain name disputes and the problem of cybersquatting. The main thrust of the article shall be to consider how the authorities react to allegations of cybersquatting and attempt to analyze whether this has been sufficiently effective as far as India is concerned. First of all, the US approach and their specific Anti-cybersquatting legislation shall be discussed. Then, the dispute resolution under Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) to deal with cybersquatting cases shall be considered. The next part of the article shall look at the Indian approach of dealing with the matter. And the final part shall suggest reforms in the prevailing law regarding the issue in India.
