Cybersquatting usually happens when someone acquire or use as its domain name, a registered trademark or service mark of an existing business without authority, in anticipation of selling it out to the company later on usually at an inflated price when they would later decide to venture into the internet medium.

It is a profiteering scheme which is made in bad faith and was held as a cyber crime by law of different state or jurisdictions.

What is your say to this growing issue of cybersquatting?

I disagree with the 'in anticipation of selling it out to the company later on usually at an inflated price when they would later decide to venture into the internet medium'.

In most cases that simply is not true. The reason is to make money from people getting the company website address wrong then going to a parked page and clicking ads.

Is this some form of intelligent spam that doesn't have links?

The replies have been spam, so I selectively removed those. The rest is content though, so I figured might as well let it stay readable by search engines and all.
