The proliferation of so-called cybersquatters, people who register the Internet domain names of high-profile companies in hopes of reselling the rights to those names for a profit, led to passing the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act in 1999, allowing companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling them later.

c) the passage in 1999 of the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent of selling

d) the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, which was passed in 1999, and it allows companies to seek up to $100,000 in damages against those who register domain names with the sole intent to sell

I narrowed it down to B and C. I chose C because "the Act, which allows ..." sounds better than "in 1999, which allows..."

Picked C.

'passing' is incorrect. The sentence requires 'passage'. Eliminate A.

'which' incorrectly refers to '1999' in B. Eliminate.

'and' is not required in D. The sentence is not trying to convey two messages. D is conveying two messages 1) the act was passed and 2) the act allows... The original sentence want to say that an act, which allows ..., was passed. Stay as close to the original meaning as possible.

E has the same problem as D.
