Whether objecting to another party’s domain name or receiving an objection concerning your domain name, the first step is to determine your rights. The Ingber Law Firm can assist you in such matters. The final outcome of any domain name dispute may result in the cancelation or transfer of a domain name from one party or the other. If an amicable resolution is not reached, the parties have two options: arbitration or litigation. A knowledgeable Essex County, New Jersey intellectual property lawyer from our legal team can guide you through either of these processes help you attain the results you need.
Arbitration is governed by the rules and regulations set forth in the Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”) developed by ICANN (Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers). When a person registers a domain name with any of the ICANN-approved registrars, that person becomes contractually bound to the UDRP rules and regulations for arbitration. Arbitration is on a fast-track, it is geographically unlimited, and is a relatively inexpensive means of resolving ownership issues. There are only two remedies available in arbitration: cancelation or transfer of the domain name in issue.
Litigation typically takes place in a federal court and it can be commenced before (in lieu of), during, or after arbitration. In litigation, a party is also free to bring a number of claims, e.g., trademark infringement, common law unfair competition and/or passing off, dilution claims, and/or a claim under the U.S. Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act.
