Trade Mark Concerns
Ignorance of domain law is no excuse.
- Domain name registrants are required to use and manage their domain names under the terms of their registration agreement.
- Trading domains is completely legal as long as the domain being sold does not infringe on the trademark rights of a third party.
- The registration agreement and its terms of service may prohibit a seller listing the domain names of Trademarked domain names for sale.
- Domain name sellers should be aware that it is their responsibility to ensure that their domain name is free from possible trademark infringements before listing it for sale.
- We discourage any obvious trade mark listings, we have the right to delete the domains from market place without any warning also when we notice the listed domain is a popular Trademark and in violation to the Intellectual property law.
Legal disputes may turn out to be expensive, may take months to years to resolve, may bring new legal risks.
- Possessing a trademark for a given term does not guarantee that you have a legal claim to a domain name.
- Possession of a valid trademark is only one of three requirements that you need to meet to win ownership of a domain name via ICANN's Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).
- UDRP filing fee is 1500 USD and additional legal expenses.
- Before Complaining, make sure you engage your legal expert to seek the legal opinion and aware of the legal risks of claiming the domain from a rightful
domain owner, this may lead to
Reverse domain name hijacking.
