In the age of electronic communications, web domains are an indispensable means of any online activity. This makes contracting recovery of domains or prosecution of infringing parties to professionals vital.
The most common infringements concerning web domains include: cybersquatting (registering domains identical to trade marks, business names, surnames, or pseudonyms), typosquatting (registering domains with typos [typological errors] while retaining the similarity to other party?s domains containing trade marks, business names, surnames, or pseudonyms), cyberwildcatting (registering domains identical to trade marks, business names, surnames, or pseudonyms on a mass scale for further resale), cyber smearing (registering ridiculous web domains containing trade marks, business names, surnames, or pseudonyms with an extra ridiculous word).
We handle cases concerning ?.pl? web domains at courts of common jurisdiction and at the Court of Arbitration for the Internet Domain Names at the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications.
In cases concerning ?.eu? domains, we represent our clients at the Czech Court of Arbitration in Prague (Court of Arbitration at the Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Agriculture of the Czech Republic). This court was appointed as the only court resolving disputes concerning ?.eu? domains.
For most of other domains, we assist our clients by representing them at the Centre for Mediation and Arbitration of the World Intellectual Property Organization in Geneva.Back
