PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — ICM Registry has suspended .XXX registrations that appear to be in violation of "unmistakable, blatant" cybersquatting.

BusinessWeek.xxx, CNBC.xxx, GeoCities.xxx, Nextag.xxx, Snapfish.xxx, VerizonWireless.xxx, WashingtonPost.xxx and GayRoom.xxx, among others, were cited as sites that were registered against policy.

It was ICM Registry's first announcement on cybersquatting incidences since general registration began last week.

"We will not tolerate nefarious conduct and will exercise our right to take appropriate action when we detect widespread repeat patterns of cyber-squatting activity," said Stuart Lawley, who leads .XXX operator ICM Registry.  "Would-be cyber-squatters are on notice — neither ICM Registry nor the .XXX community will be complicit in the theft or abuse of intellectual property."

Lawley said that the rights protections built into its agreement with registrants gives the registry tools to combat malicious conduct.

In addition to its authentication policy, its Rapid Evaluation Service takes immediate action on clear abuse of well-known, distinctive registered trademarks. .XXX also has a dispute resolution process.
