Firm attorneys provide a wide range of domain name services and protection.

Computer Law Example

Mai v. Peak
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that when an unauthorized user performs maintenance on a computer and causes an operating system to load diagnostic software into the computer, the resulting copyright is unauthorized and therefore, a violation of the copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Computer Law Fact

The US Copyright section 117 was amended in 1998 to allow the exception of making copies of software in a computer in order to repair the computer.

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.
