    WIPO, a U.N. agency based in Geneva, received 2,156 complaints alleging "abusive registration of trademarks on the Internet" last year, up 18 percent from 2006 and 48 percent more than the filings lodged in 2005.
    "These increases confirm that 'cybersquatting' remains a significant issue for rights holders," Francis Gurry, WIPO's deputy director-general, said Thursday.
    Most complaints came from the pharmaceutical, banking, telecommunications, retail, and entertainment sectors.
