I agree with DJK here; this is a good definition, but does not need
the emphasis specifically on trademarks.  In fact, you hit the nail on
the head earlier when you stated that a domain is worth whatever
someone is willing to pay for it.

Likewise, cybersquatting is engaging in any of the above practices
with intent to profit from any entity which places value on the
domains acquired by the squatter.  This could include companies,
trademark owners or individuals who had previously been identified
with a particular name.
