Definition from Crucial Marketing:
반복해서 새로운 팝업 창이 뜨거나, 브라우저 메뉴를 비활성화사킴으로써 방문자가 웹 사이트를 빠져 나갈 수 없도록 하는 속임수

Example sentence(s):
  • 칼도어에 따르면 수백개의 소규모 사이트들이 `공동 패스워드' 시스템을 도입하고 대형 사이트들은 소규모 협력사이트들에 무료 컨텐트를 제공함으로써 시장 지배력을 강화하고 있다. 칼도어는 이와 함께 포르노사이트 사이에 이른바 `쥐덫(mousetrapping)'이라고 불리는 자동접속 시스템을 구축하고 차별화한 특정 소수의 인터넷이용자를 공략하는 `니치마케팅'이 활발하게 전개되는 점도 인터넷포르노산업이 번창하는 요인이라고 설명했다. - 인터넷 한겨레  

한겨레에서 쥐덫이라고 번역해서 쓴 용례가 한 건 검색됩니다만, '마우스트래핑'이라고 음역하는 편이 낫다고 생각합니다.
