Anti-Cybersquatting Coalition Responds to ICANN

The last update from CADNA, the Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse that FairWinds Partners helped form, came on July 24, 2007, when the coalition’s founding members held a press conference to formally launch the global anti-cybersquatting initiative.

CADNA, whose members include AIG, Dell, Eli Lilly, Hilton, HSBC, Marriott, Richemont, Verizon, Wyndham, and Yahoo! issued a press release this morning and made CADNA’s submission to ICANN’s Tasting Survey available online.

In line with its commitment to significantly reduce cybersquatting, CADNA’s submission details the experiences of its members with the Add Grace Period (AGP) and highlights CADNA’s desire to eliminate this unnecessary loophole in the domain name system.

While the Coalition is gaining momentum, it is currently welcoming new members. If you are interested in learning more about cybersquatting, its effects on your business, and what CADNA is doing to reduce online brand abuse, please contact us to discuss this or to request CADNA’s membership prospectus.

A safer Internet requires the support of every type and size of organization – CADNA offers several ways to get involved and further this cause.
