Domain names and bad faith registrations

Domain names and bad faith registrations – Lexology 

The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) is a procedure for resolving disputes concerning domain names ending in a generic top level domain (for example, .com, .net and .org) and also certain country code top level domains.

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Arbitration and Mediation Center is one of the bodies that hears these disputes. To obtain an order that a domain name should be cancelled or transferred, a complainant must prove that:

  • it has rights in a trade mark which is identical or confusingly similar to the domain name;
  • the respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the domain name; and
  • the domain name has been registered, and is being used, in bad faith.
