I can assist you to assert and defend your rights in domain name disputes whether filed under the UDRP or the URS systems.
About Domain Name Disputes
When registering for a domain you must agree to certain conditions, including that any disputes regarding who has the right to a domain will be resolved using a third party
arbitrator such as the National Arbitration Forum. The UDRP and URS were both designed as faster and cheaper method of resolving disputes over domain names, rather than relying on the court system. Under each of these systems parties who believe that their trademark is being used as a domain name can petition an arbitration panel to have the domain stripped from the current holder, and in UDRP cases, transferred to the petitioner.
Whether your mark is being abused or someone else is looking to abuse the domain name arbitration process, I can help you file and respond to domain name claims under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Policy (UDRP) with both the National Arbitration Forum and or the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
