The following Article briefly examines the legal tools originally available to trademark owners (under federal law and an alternate dispute resolution procedure) and the deficiencies of each tool in anti-cybersquatting litigation. This Article presents an overview of the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) and examines how it addresses some of the failures of prior legal tools, with particular emphasis on the ACPA's in rem jurisdiction provision.
