All registrars in the .com, .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
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).
