Domain names are an integral part of intellectual property. For this reason trademark owners are directly affected by abuses and developments such as cybersquatting, typosquatting, the introduction of new gTLDs (a generic Top Level Domain is an international domain name not assigned to any specific country), and the change in rules and regulations of ccTLDs (a country code Top Level Domain is a two letter extension assigned to a specific country such as .uk (United Kingdom)) within the domain name industry.
