Conflict between trademark and domain-name. Photo by rawpixel on Unsplash

February 2019

You have found out that a website infringes your industrial property rights?

Did you know that your trademark rights allow you to take action against a fraudulent website? You may not only dispute the content of a website, but also request the cancellation or transfer of the site’s address, in case this Domain Name would be too close to your trademark rights.

We would be pleased to assist you in the proceedings enforcing your trademark rights against a Domain Name, also called UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy).

This extrajudicial procedure has the advantage of being fast and cost effective. After a few months only, an arbitration court will make its decision, allowing you to acquire the disputed Domain Name or have it cancelled.
