Dallas-Fort Worth Cybersquatting Lawyers
Seeking a Favorable Resolution in Your Cybersquatting Dispute
Cybersquatting – or domain squatting – occurs when a person registers a domain name that is identical or substantially similar to a name or trademark belonging to another person or entity. Cybersquatters often hope to profit from the domain name when they sell it to the name or trademark owner. In other cases, cybersquatters use popular domain names in an effort to generate traffic to their own websites.
If you feel that your intellectual property rights are being violated by a cybersquatter, there are steps you can take to protect your interests. The processes involved in resolving cybersquatting disputes can be difficult to navigate. It is essential that you seek the advice of an experienced Dallas-Fort Worth internet intellectual property attorney with the ability to protect your interests in these complex matters. Our team at Norred Law has extensive experience handling cybersquatting cases and is prepared to help you.
How to Resolve a Domain Name Dispute
Domain name disputes are typically resolved in one of two venues: Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceedings or federal court.
In a UDRP proceeding, an arbitrator or mediator determines whether the disputed domain name should be transferred to the holder of the trademark in the interest of maintaining the mark’s integrity. In the majority of these cases, the domain name is either transferred to the holder or the cybersquatter’s registration is canceled.
Federal court action can also be pursued under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA). These actions can be taken to appeal an unsatisfactory decision in a UDRP proceeding or in lieu of one.
