    The introduction talks about branding, and the fact that companies can
    do it very inexpensively on the Internet. Chapter one explains
    trademarks, as well as the domain name system. The Uniform Domain
    name dispute Resolution Process (UDRP) is outlined in chapter two
    (along with other similar mechanisms), and key elements necessary to
    winning a dispute are noted.

    Successive chapters present a number of cases involving different
    types of principals and principles: companies (in three), institutions
    and individuals (in four), celebrities (five), sex (six), complaints
    and comments (in seven), generic names (eight), and an amalgam, in
    chapter nine, of airlines, banks, wineries, and other companies that
    have not prepared for the disputes. Chapter ten deals with the
    process of going to court with domain name disputes. Trends and
    indications in decisions are reviewed in chapter eleven.

    The book does provide a good compilation of advice on a complex and
    poorly understood topic. There is one proviso: the text frequently
    makes the point that the race is not always to the justified, nor the
    legal battle to the prepared. However, as current wisdom has it, the
    prepared side is the one to bet on.
