Domain name registration
Domain names are the virtual gateway to millions of businesses wide world. Once thought to be a waste of money, domain names are now recognised as a highly valuable asset. They are at the centre of brand development strategies and can increase traffic and visibility of online presence within hours if marketed properly.
The race to register the next million-dollar .com means that valuable names get snapped up rapidly, often with the intension to hold it to another person's ransom or to frustrate the business of another.
Disputes arising from abusive registrations of domain names (also known as cybersquatting) are governed by the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.
We have over 15 years of experience dealing with domain name disputes, from drafting formal complaints with approved dispute-resolution service providers, to drafting responses to complaints concerning the recovery or prevention of a domain name.
