1. Weekend Feature: Legal Experts Weigh In on Domain Arbitration
------------------------------------------------------------

It has kept domain disputes involving huge companies and small
profiteers known as "cybersquatters," as well as other Internet address
disputes, out of court, but is the domain arbitration that is mandatory
for Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) domain
registrants fair?

2. Editor's Pick: How to Unblock Your E-Mail
------------------------------------------------------------

Just as there are precautions that you can take to retain access to e-
mail privileges, there are methods which you can use to regain e-mail
access. Some ISPs in the U.S. block all e-mail from IP addresses known
to be responsible for spam or other forms of Internet abuse.

3. Readers' Pick: Google Gives Second Try to Desktop Search
------------------------------------------------------------

features while also addressing privacy and security issues. Industry
analysts said the latest version is both a natural extension and a
significant improvement.

4. Consumer Highlight: What Do Businesses Do With Your Personal Data?
------------------------------------------------------------

Some 72 percent of the businesses evaluated by a Boston-based research
firm scored poorly on their policies for re-using their customers'
personal data for marketing purposes, but the researchers maintain that
more companies are sensitive to privacy issues than ever before and are
acting on that awareness.

5. Hot Topic: Court Okays Use of Trademarks in Google Searches
------------------------------------------------------------

From the perspective of everyday Internet users, the Court was
essentially asked to strike a balance between the legitimate concerns of
trademark holders with potential confusion resulting from use of
trademarks by third parties, against the public's ability to use the
trademarks to search for items logically related to the trademarks.
