Internet & Domain Name Disputes

Resolve An Internet Or Domain Name Dispute

The rise of the Internet changed the way companies do business. Many businesses maintain websites, social networking pages and online advertising campaigns to reach consumers worldwide. As businesses move to the web, however, they face new obstacles for policing and protecting their intellectual property rights.

Coats & Bennett, PLLC, has significant experience in navigating the intellectual property issues that can arise in cyberspace. Based in North Carolina, we have successfully resolved our clients’ disputes over Internet IP rights nationwide and globally. As dedicated lawyers, we are ready to use a variety of dispute resolution mechanisms to stop offending activities.

The Many Avenues To Protect IP Online

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) works to address the challenges of protecting intellectual property online. Both ICANN and private companies provide alternatives to filing suit that may provide a quick and efficient resolution of online infringement issues.

Our strategic attorneys know how to best position clients to withstand online infringement. We are familiar with ICANN’s Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceedings. We know how the various take-down practices and protocols for numerous social media websites and ISPs work. The experienced legal team of Coats & Bennett, PLLC, can harness the private mechanisms available to resolve and take down infringing activities online.

When appropriate, we file lawsuits for online violations. We also defend our clients when they confront UDRP proceedings and accusations of these violations. Regardless, for online violations of intellectual property rights, it is advantageous to have previously registered your trademarks and copyrights.

Challenge Infringement On The Internet

Business opportunities available through the Internet are plentiful. When a dispute develops, however, legal issues can become complex – and it becomes vital to pursue the optimal approach.
