Firm attorneys provide a wide range of domain name services and protection.
Computer Law Example
The Supreme Court in Tasini v. New York Times Co.
533 U.S. 483 (2001) held that New York Times could not license the works of freelance journalists when it licensed back issues of its newspaper online services for inclusion in their databases. These works were not able to be licensed as the freelancer's grant of one-time print rights did not extend to publication in a database.
Computer Law Fact
Publishing contracts today almost always includes electronic publishing rights to allow the publisher to publish the work online and license it to online databases.
Domain Name Searches and Registration
Firm attorneys assist clients by running searches on desired domain names, suggesting domain names for registration, and assist in registering such names.
Domain Name Acquisition
If the domain search uncovers the desired domains to already be registered, we can assist in negotiating their purchase.
Anticybersquatting and Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP)
Firm attorneys assist clients facing cybersquatting issues. The Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) allows trademark owners to challenge an infringing domain name registration. Our firm is experienced in obtaining relief for clients seeking to protect their trademark rights through UDRP proceedings.
Renewal and change of registrar
Our firm maintains accounts at various registrars and can assist with the renewal of domain names, change of registrars and monitoring of deadlines.
