Domain Name Disputes
Domain name disputes arise largely from the practice of cybersquatting, which involves the pre-emptive registration of trademarks by third parties as domain names. Cybersquatters exploit the first-come, first-served nature of the domain name registration system to register names of trademarks, famous people or businesses with which they have no connection. All domain registrars (such as GoDaddy and the like) agree to abide by ICANN’s Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy and Procedure (“UDRP”). A UDRP action can be much faster than normal litigation in courts. And, fees can also be much lower than normal litigation. Clients may also seek relief from cybersquatting in Federal Courts under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. The attorneys at The Plus IP Firm have represented both defendants and plaintiffs in domain name disputes and can help you effectively obtain a favorable resolution if you are in a domain name dispute.
