    I was doing some research this weekend when I came across an article published by American Bar Association in June. The article by Tamara Kurtzman, a California attorney, rails against the practice of buying domain names for future sale to companies that may want to use them. Kurtzman calls this “anticipatory cybersquatting.”

    Kurtzman blames people registering domains that might someday be similar to trademarks for causing a “frustration of corporate opportunity.”
