Unfortunately, it is not at all uncommon for third parties to register internet domain names (website addresses) which use names and trade marks identical or similar to your own, often with the intention of misleading your customers, disrupting your business or extorting money from you to hand over the domain.

Domain name hijacking, cybersquatting and other forms of domain name abuse can be frustrating and damaging for businesses, and often difficult and complex to address. Beck Greener’s trade mark attorneys can assist in these issues and propose practical steps to try to resolve them.
We regularly advise on and conduct domain name disputes before various internet domain name tribunals around the world, as well as the domain name aspects of trade mark and other IP infringements that take place on the websites themselves. Both can be subject to court litigation which our IP attorneys are well placed to conduct if we are unable to resolve the matter without the need to resort to formal proceedings.
