New publication (protection of tribal names)

Thanks to Emmanuel Gillet for mentioning this paper in the Virginia Journal of Law and Technology : Thekla Hansen-Young, Whose Name is it, Anyway? Protecting Tribal Names from Cybersquatters, 10 Va. J.L. & Tech. 6 (2005).
This article examines the remedies available to tribes to protect their tribal names from cybersquatting—a situation in which a registrant registers a mark or personal name as a domain name. It argues that the ACPA, the UDRP, and related trademark law can be interpreted to protect tribal names.
