Domain Name Practice

 

Protecting a business’s online presence is essential for any brand in today’s globalized market. A successful brand protection strategy in Internet depends on a coordinated effort across multiple jurisdictions in charge of IT governance.

Our global IT/ IP team of expert professionals provide regular internet monitoring services that include strategic tracking on key search engines to identify trademark infringements, spot cybersquatting activity, and detect counterfeiting activities. We submit take-down notices, register complaints over the improper use of search engine keywords, and apply for cease and desist orders against online infringement, cybersquatting.

Our qualified lawyers handle Commercial Dispute Resolution (CDR) proceedings, often litigating, when necessary, to address trademark infringement in Internet. Our expert lawyers take an active role in the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), within ICANN’s Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) and its Council, and in the Intellectual Property Constituency (IPC). Some of our lawyers have also remarkable experience as panelists in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

Our experts in the Domain Name Practice area provide ongoing advice to clients regarding the Uniform Domain Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP), conducting dispute proceedings from abusive registrations of domain names before the WIPO Mediation and Arbitration Centre.
