Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) Actions
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is responsible for keeping record of all top level domain name owners. Similarly, when trademark-based disputes over domain names arise, the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) can be used to resolve such disputes. All top level domain name holders are bound by the UDRP, and can submit a complaint to an approved dispute resolution provider. If your complaint is successful, the infringing domain name will be transferred to the complainant.
Discovering someone is using a domain name in a way that purposefully tries to bite your style is incredibly frustrating. But, did you know that you can file an action called a Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy proceeding? Because it is outside of the court system, it can be far less expensive than traditional litigation, and provides you a forum to pursue infringers who may not be in the United States.
