Domain name registrants are well aware of the issue of cybersquatting, which is the practice of registering a domain name for the purpose of extracting a fee from the “rightful” owner in exchange for its transfer. Another peril poses a more persistent, if less controversial, risk. That peril is that a valid domain name simply may lapse and become generally available, possibly without the registrant’s knowledge.
