Domain Names > Watching and Defense

 
  
For general information regarding our watching program, please refer to the appropriate section on trademarks. 
In regards to domain names, however, please refer to our domain watch offer in particular. This allows the monitoring of brand and/or domain name registrations. The program includes the monitoring of the register for a single top level domain on down to the monitoring of all available domain name registers of differing variations. This offer is an ideal complement to trademark watching, especially when a trademark has been registered in many countries, but not all relevant top level domain registrations have as yet been completed.
We carry out, wherever indicated, negotiations with opposing parties and/or their representatives in order to be able to settle, whenever necessary, disagreements regarding the name rights of our clients (through coexistence and prior right agreements). If no conjoint solution can be reached, we represent our clients in disputes before the ruling administrative and arbitration authorities. For conflicts over domain names, we represent our clients at specially created arbitration authorities, such as the "Arbitration and Mediation Center" of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva, which rules on these cases according to the "Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy," which became effective in 1999. Moreover, we safeguard the interests of our clients in courts worldwide through consultation with local attorneys.
