Domain Names & E-commerce

We advise on the relationship between domain names and intellectual property law, particularly in the area of trade marks, and our attorneys can assist you with new online and e-commerce projects as well advising on contentious matters such as preventing unauthorised use of trade marks and brands within domain names, email addresses and websites.

We are also very experienced in handling UDRP domain name complaints for clients. If your branding is being used within the scope of a domain name by another party then there may be meaningful action you can take to force the transfer of the domain name away from the offending party. Talk to us today to find out more.
