It has been reported that within the past 12 months there have been over 2,900 domain name disputes within the UK.
Domain names have become precious commodities as the internet has no boundaries and no closing hours and unlike trade marks each domain name is unique. This means there can often be some pressure to be the first to register a domain name, and this can lead to disputes on the “right” to register. As a result domain name disputes can arise.
Domain names and disputes are managed according to policies set by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names & Numbers).
