Domain Names and Disputes

Domain Names are the street signs of the Internet world, and the way that Internet users worldwide find content, communication and commerce. Choosing – and protecting -- domain names, especially in the increasingly complex world of New generic Top Level Domains (“New gTLDs”), will be an increasing challenge.

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys assist clients with all issues directly related to their domain names, including:

  • Domain name selection;
  • Monitoring and brand protection;
  • Domain name disputes, including proceedings involving ICANN’s Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”) (the first global online dispute resolution process, a process which FHH attorneys helped to draft) and Uniform Rapid Suspension challenges and defenses, as well as the United States Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act;
  • Negotiations involving the sale, transfer, and auction of domain names; and
  • Work with proxy/privacy providers of domain name services.
