CADNA Expands Membership and International Reach

Coalition Welcomes the LEGO Group and Lundbeck to its Ranks

WASHINGTON, November 2, 2010 – The Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse (CADNA) welcomes its two newest members, LEGO Juris A/S and H. Lundbeck A/S. The LEGO Group manufactures the perennial childhood classic toy, LEGO® building blocks. Lundbeck is a global pharmaceutical company dedicated to researching and producing preparations against depression, as well as pharmaceuticals to treat central nervous system disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Coming from two very distinct industries, the LEGO Group and Lundbeck bring different perspectives on and concerns about the online space to their partnership with CADNA. The LEGO Group with its myriad products has dealt extensively with cybersquatters who register countless permutations of its brands as domain names. As a leading producer and distributor of prescription medications, Lundbeck is well aware of the threats posed by illegal Internet pharmacies that peddle counterfeit or non-prescribed drugs.

Both companies are based in Denmark and have a strong international presence. Because cybersquatting, trademark infringement, and other forms of malicious online activity are truly global issues, CADNA is looking forward to working with these two new members to expand its reach abroad and positively influence legislation to protect brands and consumers alike.

CADNA is very pleased to welcome the LEGO Group and Lundbeck. The support of its members makes CADNA’s message more powerful and its efforts more successful. CADNA and its member companies, who represent a diverse range of industries and interests, continually push to make the online space a better and more secure environment for businesses, consumers and all those who utilize the Internet. By increasing its membership, CADNA can more effectively reach out and advocate for positive change through education and legislation.

The Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse (CADNA) is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the systemic domain name abuses that plague the Internet today. For more information, please visit
