Cybersquatting and new gTLDs

Extract: "Cybersquatting happens when a person registers a domain name that a company would value, for instance abercrombie.CLOTHING, and then either ransoms it back to the company or uses it to impersonate the company online. This was a major problem in the early days of the internet, before companies realized how valuable their domains would be. The release of all these new web addresses has brought it back into the mainstream".
