Helping brands resolve domain ownership and cybersquatting disputes
Domain names are central to the identity of most businesses today, and protecting and monitoring them can significantly reduce the likelihood of your brand being misused online. When they do occur, domain infringements can have a rapid, far-reaching, negative impact, and it is important for brands to take swift action to resolve these domain name disputes.
What CSC offers
- Registrant investigation. We can research registrants to determine whether they have legitimate rights to the domain name and whether it was registered in bad faith and/or is being abused.
- Fully researched demand letters. If the registrant does not have legitimate rights in the domain name, a fully-customized cease and desist letter, as well as a follow–up, typically results in a high number of domain name transfers, cancellations, or deactivations.
- Dispute resolution procedures. We draft and file complaints for you in accordance with appropriate domain dispute resolution procedures (including UDRP, DRP, and URS for new gTLDs).
CSC offers domain recovery services that includes clear and tested steps to deal with domain name disputes. We can file Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) and other complaints on your behalf.
Our tailored approach gives us the discretion to customize cease and desist letters versus using automated, generic messaging. For the new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) and a growing number of other extensions, Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) offers a lower-cost, faster path to relief for rights holders experiencing clear-cut cases of infringement caused by domain name registrations.
