“We help you to maintain your trademark protection on the internet”
Has someone registered your trademark as a domain name? Or does someone think that you have mistakenly registered someone else’s trademark as a domain name? We can help you when disputes arise that concern domain names. Instead of resolving the dispute in court, which is both expensive and slow, you can use an administrative dispute resolution procedure. Which dispute resolution procedure you should choose depends on the top-level domain that the domain name is registered under. It is both fast and cost-effective, and you know in advance how much it will cost. Contact us today about your domain name.
ADR & UDRP
There are different administrative dispute resolution procedures to choose from when disputes arise regarding domain names. Which one to use depends on the domain name’s top-level domain. For example, you should use the Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure (ADR) for .se top-level domains. When it concerns disputes under the top-level domains .com, .info, .org and .nu, the UDRP-system is the applicable procedure, also called the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy.
The ADR system is administered by the Internet Foundation in Sweden (IIS), which is an independent, non-profit organisation. If you want to start an ADR procedure for a .se domain name, then there are two options. Either you can request that the domain name be transferred to you or you can request that the domain name should be deregistered. Similarly, you can defend your domain name by requesting that it should not be transferred or deregistered.

Benefits of ADR & UDRP
To resolve a dispute over a domain name is generally cheaper and faster than to sue someone in court. Also, you know in advance what it will cost as you are not required to reimburse the opposing party’s legal costs.
