Campaign 2 April 2006


The first campaign happened nearly 2 years ago and was directed to get the New Telecommunications Law in Belgium to include amendments that would oblige the ISP's to protect the internet in Belgium for free from viruses and SPAM. THis passed last year.



Now it seems the second gatekeeper isn't doing anything against malware, spyware, phishing and crooks. It is our belgian domain gardian.

__Typosquatting __is where domainnames are registred only because they contain typing mistakes of domainnames with enormous or important traffic. The goals are to sell them to the righteous owners or to get some traffic for the ads that are hosted on the pages. Some install spyware or tracking cookies on the computers.

It should be easy for the firms or institutions that manage domainnames to refuse this kind of domainnames or to use the tools to control if some of these domainnames are being created or used with solely that purpose, to declare it illegal and to transfer the ownership of the domain. It should also be possible to block this kind of registration before activating it by declaring the practise illegal.
