Do you own a trademark? Do you rely on your domain name for business? Do you have imposters using your trademark in their domain? Then a domain dispute proceeding might be the solution you need.
Domain dispute proceedings, often referred to as UDRPs (for the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy), are arbitration proceedings to stop the abusive registration of domain names.
In terms of legal proceedings, these are done at light speed, often completely resolved within 60 days of filing. However, the available remedy is narrow and, in most circumstances, limited to recovery of the infringing domain. No money damages are available in domain dispute proceedings before an administrative body.
Most often, domain dispute proceedings are the right fit for entities facing abusive domain name registrations containing their trademark, or something similar to it. This arbitration proceeding, which all domain registrants consented to when registered the domain, provides an efficient method of solving a sticky online problem.
