I need to retrieve a domain name protected by trademark rights. Where do I start?

My web domain was stolen. Someone must have hacked my login info with the domain registrar. I do have trademark rights so can I get my web domain back?

Sometimes it cost money to get back stolen domain names. Whether you hire a domain dispute lawyer to help you depends on how bad you need the domain back. Ask yourself these questions.

1. How much business am I losing to diverted traffic?
2. Are my trademark rights being diluted?
3. Are my customers being confused or deceived?

Typically, you will earn whatever money you spend on a cybersquatting lawyer if you get your domain back. The only question is how long it take based on additional revenue. Don't forget that you could lose your trademark rights if you allow cybersquatters to sit on your rights.

The words "someone stole my domain name" are all too common. Domain theft is on the rise. Hacking and registrar manipulation are common methods used to steal domain names. You would rather avoid a domain dispute all together. Protect your URLs and you won't need to hire a domain lawyer.

How do you prevent theft when it is the registrar that is doing the stealing? I lost a few domain names in the Registerfly meltdown. I was told that responsibility for Registerfly domains was taken over by godaddy. When I contacted godaddy they said that there was a tremendous backlog to work through. Still trying and still no information months later.
iPower is another registrar - actually a 3rd party registrar. They were "transitioning" to their new system so it was difficult to find out information about your domains. Your iPower managment screen doesn't relect your ownership. It may say expiration date is next year and you think you are ok but it doen't necessarily show YOUR expiration date but some other current owner. Thanks again for your information.

All the best,

I have an e-commerce domain name issues. What if the infringer sets up an e-commerce site on my domain name?

I had my domain name stolen by a hacker who got into my email account. Never got the domain back.

Given the large number of domain names out there, domain name violations seem to be a small portion of the whole.

Stealing internet names should be a crime. How is it different than stealing a car?

The hijacking of domain names is becoming more common. Some call it cybersquatting or domain theft. Others call it domain piracy. Domain name hijacking is much more common than you think. It can happen to you.

There are, for all practical purposes, three venues appropriate for in rem proceedings under the ACPA (1) the location of the registrar, (2) Herndon, VA - the location of the .com registry, (3) Mountain View, CA - the offices of Verisign, the .com registry.

Wikis are great for online training because they encourage interaction. They probably works best when training is seamlessly integrated with day- to- day work. The wiki sets a direction for the workforce and raises the standard without the word‘ training’ even being mentioned.
