A cybersquatter is someone who has registered another's name or trademark as a domain name with the prospect of selling it to the rightful owner. It's a form of legalised blackmail. They steal your name and use it to damage your business or reputation.

Cybersquatting, the act of registering a name in bad faith, has become one of the major problems facing businesses on the Internet. Although the term Cybersquatting was originally used to describe the act of registering another's trademarked name, the term is commonly used to describe many different forms of bad faith registrations.

A person who registers or acquires a domain name that is confusingly similar to a mark in which another person has rights (via a trademark, for instance); provided the cybersquatter is attempting to take advantage of the goodwill of the trademark holder.
The person who registers is probably not a cybersquatter, while a person who registers probably is.
