Cybersquatters in the early 1990s recognized the potential to make a fortune
in years to come by registering many domain names containing popular words
or phrases. This is done by either selling the names to interested buyers
for a premium, or generating "advertising clicks" on websites. In 1999, a
law was passed giving the owners of trademarked entities the legal right to
own the domain name. This law is the "Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection
Act" or ACPA.
