Senator Spencer Abraham last week introduced the
Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. In addition
to cracking down on the bad faith registration of popular
trademark names for domain names, the bill is intended,
according to Abraham, to "protect consumers who make
typographical errors and enter legitimate domain names
and are instead directed to Internet sites containing
pornography or other inappropriate material."

Critics of the bill argue that existing trademark law
already provides reasonable remedy for infringement and
that, if passed, the bill would expand trademark law
excessively - well beyond what we've seen in recent history.
