Markmonitor Brandjacking Report: 2008 in review

We saw increases in the fourth quarter of 2008 as well as year-over-year for each abuse category that we track. The majority of offenses are cybersquatting – the practice of abusing trademarks within the domain name system – which rose to almost 450,000 incidents in Q4 2008.
