Our domain name dispute lawyers are contacted regularly by companies who have a falling out with their web developer and thereafter realize that the web developer has registered the domain name listing the web developer as registrant. When the domain name is trademarked protected, this presents a number of issues for both the web developer and the trademark holder.
If you have a domain theft issue, you may contact one of our domain dispute attorneys for a free evaluation or call 866.936.7447 (International Toll Free).
"Here’s a common mistake small businesses make.
They know they need a web site, so they contact a couple web design firms in town. The web designers pitch them on a project that includes site design, web hosting, and registering the domain name. The small business signs on the dotted line and everyone is happy.
So what’s the problem? The domain is registered in the web design firms’ name."
