UDRP Domain Name Arbitrations
The UDRP arbitration process is a quick and cost-efficient process for trademark holders to gain control of domain names containing their trademarks. Kronenberger Rosenfeld has represented parties in UDRP arbitrations for over fifteen years, and the strength and depth of our tech-focused trademark practice is the primary reason for the firm’s success in UDRP arbitrations.
Our experience makes all the difference in UDRP domain name arbitrations.
Kronenberger Rosenfeld represents the range of trademark holders and alleged cybersquatters in ICANN UDRP domain name arbitrations. We have appeared in all the major forums (including the National Arbitration Forum and World Intellectual Property Organization), and we've battled over the spectrum of top-level domains from .com to .uk. We bring that experience to bear in every ICANN arbitration we handle.
Tap into our experience in representing both trademark holders and alleged cybersquatters in domain arbitrations.
Kronenberger Rosenfeld has succeeded in the hard cases, such as those on behalf of individuals seeking to seize domain names that infringe their common law trademark rights in their personal names. In one such case, we seized AnthonyQuinn.com on behalf of the Academy Award winner’s estate after devising a creative process of proving the deceased actor’s common law trademark rights in the Anthony Quinn name.
We have also succeeded against large and established trademark owners, such as Royal Caribbean, which attempted to unfairly leverage its size and brand against one of our clients, whose business depended on its use of a non-infringing domain name.
