Domain Name Dispute Resolution for .COM Domains (UDRP)
.com, .net and .org are generic top-level domains (gTLDs). Verisign Inc. manages the registry for .com and .net gTLDs and Public Interest Registry (PIR) is responsible for .org gTLD.
.com, .net and .org gTLDs are allocated based on the “first come, first served” principle. No check for conflicting older rights is conducted. Disputes are settled by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) based on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).
After the UDRP, the complainant under the dispute resolution procedure should provide evidence that:
- the domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and,
- the domain holder has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and

Studies show that brands lose 5% of their traffic to criminals who miss use their domain names by typosquatting. Many customers give up after not finding the desired domain or if customer is getting forwarded to 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 miss used domain, block the domain or stop the misuse.
