==Free Registration==
Domainer, blogger, and gTLD consultant, [[Michael Berkens]], noted that the free registration of any domains could be a cause for a great amount of [[cybersquatting]]. Mr. Berkens noted this in a blog post in response to comments that [[ICANN]]'s [[New gTLD Program]] as a whole will create rampant cybersquatting. He argues that this is not the case given the fact that new gTLDs will likely have a higher registration price than current TLDs, and therefore create a more costly entry barrier for cybersquatters. However, he notes that [[Google]] is likely to give away free registrations for at least one of its nearly 100 new TLD applications, and that should it get .free this space could become a clear problem for trademarks and IP rights with regards to cybersquatting and [[typosquatting]].,ref>[http://www.thedomains.com/2013/02/14/forbes-new-gtlds-rich-new-territories-for-cybersquatters-why-forbes-is-wrong/ Forbes New gTLDs Rich New Territories for Cybersquatters Why Forbes is Wrong] Published & Retrieved 14 Feb 2013</ref>
