I often write here on the GigaLaw blog about current trends in domain name disputes, as well as subtle but important issues raised by the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP), the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS), and other domain name dispute policies.
But I recognize that providing a high-level overview of cybersquatting and domain name disputes is essential to understand the details that I often discuss.
So, in a simple, two-page PDF document, I offer a primer on "How to Resolve a Domain Name Dispute." This introduction to the topic describes the problems caused by cybersquatting and the popular legal tools that are available to trademark owners to resolve them.
Hopefully, this document answers many of the basic questions about domain name disputes, an area of the law in which I have been practicing for more than 20 years. Obviously, this is not a comprehensive guide to the topic, but it outlines the basic issues.
