Domain Dispute

When is a domain dispute justified?

Increasingly, domains are becoming a commercial weapon for companies, because they allow trademarks to be identified, promoting the busines within the market and to customers. As it turns out, this is precisely why other companies, or individuals, frequently register domains featuring names of well-known trademarks. They aim to either defame them or, most commonly, expect to be able to sell the domains at much higher prices than they were originally bought for. This is known as cybersquatting; an unfair and illegal practice that makes a domain dispute necessary.

Unfortunately, it’s not yet possible to ensure a domain registration screening to protect you in these situations. This means that it’s necessary to resort to amicable negotiation processes or judicial conciliation schemes in order to eliminate the improper use of trademarks or company names when occurred.

How can I dispute a domain?

If you need to dispute a domain, we recommend that you directly contact Inventa so that we can analyze your case, verify the viability of the dispute, and move forward with the necessary procedures. In a domain dispute, our team will take full responsibility for contacting and negotiating with the owner of the registration, as well as with the relevant authorities and the sector’s regulatory bodies.

Does a domain dispute involve a big financial outlay?

In any case, Inventa will always aim to make the process as profitable as possible. As such, we will provide you with all the necessary advice to reduce your financial outlay to a minimum.
