What is a Trademark Statement of use?
A Statement of Use (SOU) is one of the official forms used by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It can only be filed once a business has started to use a trademark.

What Is Cybersquatting?
Cybersquatting involves buying website domains, especially those of well-known companies or brands, for financial gain or unlawful use. Cybersquatters often intend to profit from someone else's registered trademark by purchasing a domain name before the trademark owner can do so.
How Did Cybersquatting Begin?
Cybersquatting started in the 1990s before most businesses were active on the internet. People bought domain names of businesses with plans to sell the domains to those businesses for profit. When businesses realized that having a website was important and they tried to buy the domain names, they faced large fees from cybersquatters.
Buying and selling company domains isn't the only way to cybersquat. Cybersquatting can involve the following:
Buying domain names of common words to resell.
Buying misspellings of popular websites.
