Is your team or outside counsel:
- Exploring approaches to mark-infringing domain name reclaim?
- Newly considering filing domain name complaints under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP)?
- Taking stock of unsuccessful UDRP complaints filed in the past?
If so, then consider downloading, reviewing, and sharing this new UDRP decisions guide produced by the FairWinds UDRP Team.
In this quick reference to the Policy, the FairWinds UDRP team outlines the information you need in order to safeguard money, time, and brand reputation by filing the right complaints, the right way.
“Three Significant UDRP Decisions To Review Before Filing A Complaint” includes guidance on:
- Best practices for protecting brands in light of cybersquatting trends;
- The growth of the internet via ICANN’s New gTLD Program; and
- The history, use, and structure of the UDRP.
You’ll also gain insight into the Policy with several illustrative case studies that analyze UDRP panel opinions on the significance of intentionality behind registrations and the determination of a domain name’s potential for consumer confusion:
- Staedtler Mars v. Maryna Kobielieva [fimo.club]
