Opportunistic cybersquatters are trying to profit from the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy by registering websites associated with the Royal baby.
In the past week, http://aroyalbaby.com and www.royalfoetus.com have been taken by savvy web users and littered with ads, the Daily Mail reported.
These mirror twitter feeds like @Royal Foetus that were registered within hours of the public announcement by the Royal family.
Following the marriage between Prince William and Kate Middleton, the savvy web users hopped on the baby bandwagon as early as January by registering sites like www.katewilliambaby.com.
"It's exciting for the whole nation that Kate is expecting - and cybersquatters are no exception," Sally Tomkotowicz, from names.co.uk, which registers domain names, said.
"We've seen domain name cybersquatting activity for key domains increase in the past 48 hours as news has emerged on the Royal couple. It's not just websites that can get taken by opportunistic squatters either. You can see it happen elsewhere on social media,' Ms Tomkotowicz added.
"On twitter, spoof accounts for Kate have been activated by a whole host of impersonators from @kate_middleton to @PrincessKateFTW. The Royal couple are among many well known names who have had problems with cybersquatters from Richard Branson to Mariah Carey and Leona Lewis," she added. (ANI)
