Our lawyers enforce clients’ rights against cybersquatters and others who improperly register and use internet domain names that are identical or confusingly similar to our clients’ names or trademarks. Effective registration is central to effective domain name enforcement for a broad range of clients. Our lawyers conduct online availability searches for domain names of interest, register the names, monitor renewal deadlines and renew registrations at the appropriate times.
Using our skills at trademark law, we also keep a close eye on the opening of new domain names, identifying where assertive action is necessary to protect client interests. We combat such abuses around the world, using traditional trademark laws, the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act and Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers domain name Uniform Dispute Resolution Procedures.
