Domain Procedures

Dispute Resolution Bodies
under gTLDs

Sometimes 'squatting' (people robbing your name without authorization) occurs on the domain linked to your name, surname or trademark:

no worries !

There are quick and cost-effective ways of having back illegally-occupied domains ?

Procedures have purposely been set up to get rid of cybersquatting-linked phenomena connected to gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains) domains. The help of legal experts provides an effective means of defeating the chaos created by this problem.

General Information

All registrars in the .com, .net, and .org top-level domains follow the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (often referred to as the "UDRP"). Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name. Disputes alleged to arise from abusive registrations of domain names (for example, cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited administrative proceedings that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a complaint with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.

To invoke the policy, a trademark owner should either (a) file a complaint in a court of proper jurisdiction against the domain-name holder (or where appropriate an in-rem action concerning the domain name) or (b) in cases of abusive registration submit a complaint to an approved dispute-resolution service provider (see below for a list and links).
