Leibowitz, Wendy R.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n20 pA39-A40 Jan 21, 2000
Examines disputes over Internet addresses and World Wide Web domain names that include names of institutions of higher education. Notes that problems range from individuals who coincidentally use an institution's name to cybersquatters who reserve such domain names with the intention of later sales to the particular institutions. Reports that most colleges are proceeding on a case-by-case basis. (DB)
