Know Your Net...
...and make sure others know it too.
Understanding the potential harms in the domain name space and how to avoid them is a key component of reducing the impact of cybersquatting.
CADNA has partnered with AARP, the Council of Better Business Bureaus, the National Cyber Security Alliance and businesses of all sizes to help eliminate confusion and reduce harm in the domain name space.

...for effective Internet policy. Read our proposed congressional resolution here.
Passage of the 1999 Anticybersquatting Protection
Act (ACPA) was a good first step toward deterring cybersquatting. But the
Internet has evolved dramatically in the past decade, as have cyber criminals.
The law must be updated and strengthened to protect businesses and consumers in
a vastly more dangerous environment. The imminent addition of new gTLDs such as .DOCTOR - in which anyone may purchase a second-level domain - adds
to the urgency for muscular, legal deterrents against
cybersquatting. ACPA must be reformed to make cybersquatting
unprofitable and too risky to undertake. Read more about our proposed changes here.
Cybersquatting is an international problem and thus the solution must also be international. CADNA intends to extend its advocacy to other nations once it has succeeded in the U.S.
