For the fourth time this year, the National Collegiate Athletic Association has filed a
cybersquatting lawsuit accusing an Internet company of unauthorized use of NCAA
trademarks.


"We've alleged that Final Four is our registered trademark and that a member of the
public who goes to one of these sites would be confused and believe that [the site] is
sanctioned by the NCAA, which gives the impression that we endorse ticket brokering,
which we are adamantly opposed to," NCAA assistant general counsel Scott
Bearby told the E-Commerce Times.

The key point in this case should be the fact that the domain names in question were allowed to be registered in the first place. Surely the company that registered these names for the accused carried out a trademark infringement check, well actually obviously they didn't! Domain names are important when used in advertising. As such, all domain name registers should be forced to take responsibility for trademark infringements and I recommend changes in the laws to enforce this. Too many registrars simply register any name without any checks in their greedy attempts to make lots of money for doing extremely little.

As long as the disclaimer is on the site - the public is informed. The NCAA does not own the english language...
