China IP: Beating China-Based Domain Name Theft.

See at Dan Harris's consistently fine and useful China Law Blog this one by Rachel Buker: "How To Stop China-Based Domain Name Theft". Excerpt:

We frequently see the following sorts of domain name thefts, oftentimes by Chinese companies seeking to hone in on a well-known brand name:

Domain names that intentionally contain a common typo of a known trademark.

Domain names that take a known trademark and attach a generic word like “outlet” or a word descriptive of the product, such as “shoes."

Domain names that are exactly the same as a known trademark’s domain name, but with a different extension. For example, abc.net, instead of abc.com.
