Today, the Internet is actively expanding. The number of users of the World Wide Web is constantly growing. If you are reading this message, it is also online now.
The information needs of users are met through numerous sites, which are accessed through a domain name. Given the number of the latter, lawyers are currently dealing with numerous domain disputes, ie those related to the proper registration and use of a domain name at any level.
The most common way to protect a domain name is to go to court. When considering this category of disputes, courts are guided not only by the current legislation, but also by the rules established by domain registrars. Therefore, the statement of claim must be given special attention, in particular to correctly identify the appropriate defendant and correctly formulate the claims.
An alternative to national courts is recourse to the UDRP procedure, which is particularly effective in resolving disputes involving top-level domain names and registered marks for goods and services. In this case, the case will be considered by one of the five accredited organizations in several stages.
Go to court or resolve the dispute as an alternative to you, and the Dynasty Law & Investment team will help.
