Dell squashes cybersquatter

Korea move

Dell has succeeded in stopping a Korean computer equipment vendor trading from the Web address DELLKOREA.com.

On February 1, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia ruled that DELLKOREA.COM violated the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act of 1999.

The court shut down the Web site and ordered "all right, title, and interest in and to the domain name registration for DELLKOREA.COM be permanently transferred to Dell."

Dell said its business is growing in Korea and that the cybersquatter had created confusion in the minds of customers. ®
