All registrars in the .biz,
.com, .info, .name, .net, and .org top-level domains follow the Uniform
Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (often referred to as the "UDRP").
Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes
must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before
a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name. Disputes
alleged to arise from abusive registrations of domain names (for example,
cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited administrative proceedings
that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a complaint
with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.
To invoke the policy, a
trademark owner should either (a) file a complaint in a court of proper
jurisdiction against the domain-name holder (or where appropriate
an in-rem action concerning the domain name) or (b) in cases of abusive
registration submit a complaint to an approved dispute-resolution
service provider (see below for a list and links).
