Domain Names

Domain names have become, in many instances, valuable rights in themselves. What started out as simply an address has become a patchwork quilt of various types of rights adapted from traditional trademark concepts and unfair competition concepts into a separate body of law.

We have experience in developing corporate strategies for registering and administering large portfolios of domain names.

We enforce our clients’ rights against cyber-squatters and others who improperly register and use Internet domain names that are identical or confusingly similar to our clients’ names or trademarks. Working with a network of attorneys in other countries we combat such abuses around the world, using national trademark laws and ICANN domain name dispute resolution procedures.

 

Key services include:

  • Domain names registration
  • Domain names litigation
  • Domain names transfer
