The Serial Cybersquatter Detector Network identifies the serial cybersquatters exploiting its members’ trademarks, plus opportunities to initiate or join UDRP class complaints through the platform.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Maccabim.com, researcher and developer of cybercrime solutions to protect brands and IP assets, today announced the launch of its Serial Cybersquatter Detector (SCD) Network powered by DomainTools®, the recognized leader in domain name research and monitoring tools.
The SCD Network (http://SCDnetwork.net) instantaneously identifies both the serial cybersquatters exploiting its members’ trademarks, as well as the opportunities to either initiate or join class complaints through the platform. Members thereby reduce their Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) costs, reclaiming infringing domain names or unmasking the identities of those hiding behind abusive Whois privacy and proxy registrations. The UDRP is a process established by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the resolution of disputes regarding the registration of internet domain names.
DomainTools powers the SCD Network by supplying the service with up-to-date, accurate information of domain name ownership and typo-squatting variations, as well as monitoring and tracking changes in status of identified targets. By leveraging the DomainTools’ API suite and integrating it into their system, the SCD Network provides a turnkey solution for brand owners to significantly reduce their UDRP costs and level the playing field against abusive Whois privacy and proxy registrations.
“DomainTools is the domain research and monitoring pioneer in the field of online brand protection. It is a privilege to partner with them and leverage their API to launch a next-generation cybercrime solution to protect brands and IP assets in an expansive digital world,” says Jonathan Matkowsky, Founder and CEO of Maccabim.com.
Matkowsky, former legal director of global brand protection for Yahoo! Inc. and chief IP counsel for Las Vegas Sands, has been a DomainTools customer since 2007.
“We are excited that Maccabim.com will become part of our technology platform ecosystem as it integrates and builds on our APIs,” said Tim Chen, CEO of DomainTools. “We are dedicated to fighting online fraud through better cybercrime investigation solutions and Maccabim’s Serial Cybersquatter Detection Network is a great innovation in this space.”
The Serial Cybersquatter Detector Network makes its official debut at the International Trademark Association (INTA) Annual Meeting, taking place in Hong Kong from May 10 through May 14, 2014 where both DomainTools and Maccabim will be exhibiting. Eligible attendees can sign up for the Network with a nominal monthly or annual subscription.
