Protect Your Domain Name
Low-Flat Rate Fees
A UDRP action is non-binding arbitration to determine who has superior rights to a domain. UDRP claims either result in the transfer of the domain from the original owner or are dismissed due to lack of merit.
If someone is improperly taking advantage of the investment you’ve made in your name or trademarks by registering a domain name that is confusingly similar to your own, we can assist you in filing a Uniform Domain Name Dispute (UDRP) Complaint. Alternatively, if a party has contacted you with a cease and desist letter or have filed a UDRP complaint against you we can assist in your defense. In most cases, we can represent you for a low fixed fee of $1999.00 plus the cost of arbitration fees which varies with the particular facts of your case.
Bringing a UDRP Complaint
For those in the U.S. looking to acquire a domain infringing upon their mark, UDRP proceedings have several distinct advantages over pursing a claim in federal court: First, jurisdiction is worldwide so it does not matter where the opposing party is located. All domain name registrars agree to execute UDRP decisions as a part of their contractual obligations with the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers. Second, is the speed at which relief can be obtained – generally, a final decision from the arbitrators will be reached within 3 months of the initial filling of the URDP claim. Finally, the cost of UDRP arbitration is a fraction of what a federal case would cost to undertake.
Responding to a UDRP Complaint
In defending against a UDRP complaint we will collaborate with you to present the facts of your situation in the best light possible to avoid a showing of a bad faith registration. General principals of fair use and critical commentary can help in your defense and we will work to challenge the strength of the complainant’s alleged trademark to help you prevail.
