Domain Name Dispute Resolution for .ch and .li Domains (UDRP)
A SWITCH dispute resolution procedure has been introduced through the Rules of Procedure for Dispute Resolution Procedures for .ch and .li domain names, which is similar to the UDRP. However, there are differences between the two procedures:
- The SWITCH dispute resolution procedure is applicable for all trademarks protected in Switzerland (e.g. trademark, company, name, etc.).
- Swiss law is applicable when assessing whether there has been a violation of the law.
- In the SWITCH procedure, the arbitration negotiation is carried out in the form of a conference call between the arbitrator and the parties.
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is responsible for resolving disputes for .ch and .li domain names.
Court proceedings can be initiated before the civil court instead of or during a SWITCH dispute resolution procedure. Furthermore, the decision in the context of the SWITCH dispute resolution procedure is not final. You can initiate court proceedings.

Domain Name Resolution for .COM
Studies show that brands lose 5% of their traffic to criminals who misuse their domain names by typosquatting. Many customers give up after not finding the desired domain or if the customer is getting forwarded to the competition.
The UDRP is an out-of-court dispute resolution for trademark owners to resolve bad-faith or other abusive registration of domains related to their trademarks. UDRP is the preferred way to stop misuse of your brand by criminal domain registrants. With UDRP you can get the misused domain, block the domain or stop the misuse.
