Brandjacking Report for MarkMonitor

My latest quarterly Brandjacking report for MarkMonitor can be found here. I summarize brand abuse trends from 2007. The bad news is that brandjackers have begun to target more mainstream packaged goods including food and beverages, automotive products, and consumer goods. The good news is that domain kiting and PPC activity has dropped off. Kiting threats actually dropped in the last quarter, and were below levels observed at the beginning of 2007. I also look at phishing and specific country trends, too.
