Bad news for typo squatters

The New York Times has the story of a California entrepreneur who is marketing a new service that the Times says not only can make Web surfing more reliable, but should make life less lucrative for typo squatters.

Washington Internet Daily (subscription required) has a full report on last week’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report that shows what it calls "limited" progress made on the first four years of the  DHS National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace.

Internet Daily also has a report on a new development in cyber law, seeking damages for defamation in small claims court, which some experts believe will be a friendlier forum than federal court for such claims. A California journalist has successfully sued a blogger in small claims court. Last month, two Yale law students filed a similar suit in federal court claiming that comments posted on a Web site catering to law students had damaged their reputations.
