H.R. 1554 ( P.L. 106-113), the "Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act," prohibits the bad faith registration, trafficking in, or use of an Internet domain name that is identical to, or confusingly similar to, a distinctive trademark or service mark, or dilutive of a famous trademark or service mark. Personal names, protected as trademarks, are subject to the provisions. Civil remedies and damages are made available to aggrieved trademark owners, and an in rem civil action can be brought against a domain name if a responsible defendant is unavailable.
