UDRP Domain Name Arbitration

Resolving domain name disputes under the mandatory UDRP Arbitration rules for owners of domain names is a part of Internet Law and Brand Protection our lawyers at Kabbiz Legal & Advisory excels in.

The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) is a very important dispute resolution mechanism established by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to address domain name disputes related to cybersquatting. The UDRP provides a very streamlined and cost-effective alternative for brand owners and domain name owners over traditional litigation for resolving conflicts arising from the abusive registration and use of domain names on the Internet.

The UDRP applies to generic top-level domain names (gTLDs) such as .com, .net, .org, as well as a selection of country-code top-level domain names (ccTLDs). It covers disputes where the registered domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights, and the domain name registrant has no legitimate interest in the domain name and has registered and used it in bad faith.

At Kabbiz Legal & Advisory, we represent trademark holders/owners and even alleged cybersquatters (on allegations of cybersquatting) in ICANN’s UDRP domain name arbitrations. Our main area of practice is Intellectual Property Law and we use our experience and expertise with Domain Names to assess what options are available to them. We represent domain name owners, companies, registrars, marketing firms and trademark owners in UDRP procedures and proceedings. We also work with domain name owners; we help them to review their global domain name portfolios so we can adequately advise them on how to reduce risk of future domain name disputes with other domain name owners or trademark owners. For domain name holders, we also write clearance letters on their behalf and undertake due diligence and risk assessment services who wish to register, purchase, or acquire either new or existing domain names.

If you have Domain Name issues, or are a party in a Domain Name dispute, we invite you to contact our experienced attorneys who have expertise in domain name disputes and cybersquatting law to evaluate your options.
