The location of a business or other entity on the Internet (its cyberspace address) is identified by its domain name. Many businesses seek to use readily recognizable names as domain names so that potential visitors can quickly locate their web sites. Because a single domain name can identify only one web site, trademark owners and web site owners have clashed over who owns the rights to a particular domain name. The status of these clashes as of January 1997 and possible solutions to the problem considered by that date are reviewed.
