Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) was laid down by ICANN at global level to cover main Domain Name extentions (TLDs) such as .Com, .Net, .Org, .Info, .Biz, etc in the year 1999. But with the launch of cTLDs, i.e. country specific domain name extensions the need was felt to have Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policies at Country Level, for example, after .IN Domains were launched in February 2005, a .IN Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (INDRP) was also laid down for peaceful resolution of Domain Dispute matters concerning any Trademark Holders.
Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy basically provides protection to the Trademark holders from any violation of their Trademark Rights and otherwise also famous marks are protected under Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy.
And with the recent launch of numerous Domain Name extensions i.e. gTLDs, a new Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) has been laid down by ICANN, which without the need of going into any cumbersome process such as UDRP, allows cheaper and faster relief to Trademark holders experiencing the most clear-cut cases of infringement. Facebook.com was the first to get an infringing Domain Name www.facebook.pw to be suspended under URS system. Also earlier this year IBM filed URS complaint against ibm.guru and ibm.ventures with National Arbitration Forum.
We can help you to represent in Domain Dispute matters either as a complainant or respondent, which are filed either under UDRP with ICANN or National Arbitration Forum (NAF) and also in case of country specific cTLDs like .IN for India, can help you respresent here in India before NIXI (Indian Registry).
