Domain Names Disputes
A domain name dispute is a conflict that arises when more than one individual believes it has the right to register a specific domain name. In most cases, a domain name dispute occurs when a domain name, which is similar to a registered trademark, is registered by an individual who is not the trademark owner.
Provided that all domain name registrars must follow the ICANN’s Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP), there are two main courses of action when a domain name dispute arises:
- Litigation through the national courts, or
- Use of the domain name dispute resolution procedure of the domain suffix (gTLD or ccTLD) in question, which is an administrative dispute resolution process
At Archilex Consulting SA we have built a strong internet and intellectual property practice that assist our Clients to bring or defend an application pursuant to the uniform domain name dispute resolution (UDRP) policy. This is an inexpensive and efficient way of resolving disputes, no matter where the registrant of the domain name is located.
