Domain Disputes

An organization may be entitled to a domain name that another party may have already registered. Patel & Almeida has an excellent track record in successfully disputing domain name registrations for our client's, including conducting Domain Name Dispute Resolution cases before the World Intellectual Property Office.

Most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

Disputes alleged to arise from abusive registrations of domain names (for example, cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited administrative proceedings that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a complaint with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.
