UDRP Domain Name Disputes

We handle domain name disputes.  We can help you file or defend a UDRP complaint filed in either the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) or World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).  If someone is cybersquatting on a domain name (or website) that should belong to you, we can help you take it from them.  If another party has registered a domain that is similar to your brand, company name, or product name, we can help.  We also handle Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) lawsuits in Alexandria, Virginia.

ACPA Litigation

Our Virginia Internet Attorneys handle in rem cybersquatting cases under the ACPA in Alexandria, Virginia.  The Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) allows US companies to sue foreign registrants of domain names to recover the domains, but these cases must be filed in Alexandria, Virginia, where VeriSign is headquartered.  VeriSign controls most of the gTLDs, including .com, .net, .info, org.  We have experience filing ACPA cases in Alexandria.  We charge a flat fee for the entire case, and can help you seize a domain name from a foreign country on a contingent basis in many cases.

Cybersquatting / Typosquatting

It is increasingly common for thieves in foreign countries to register domain names that US companies have let accidentally expire (cybersquatting), or domain names which reflect common typographical mistakes made by Internet users (typosquatting).  In either case, we can help you recover the domain name, even if it isn't clear who is responsible for the registration or the registrant is in a foreign country.  Let our experience benefit you.
