All registrars in the .com, .net, and .org top-level domains follow
the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (often referred to as the
"UDRP"). Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes
must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will
cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name. Disputes alleged to arise from abusive
registrations of domain names (for example, cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited
administrative proceedings that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a
complaint with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.
To invoke the policy, a trademark owner should either (a) file a
complaint in a court of proper jurisdiction against the domain-name holder (or where
appropriate an in-rem action concerning the domain name) or (b) in cases of abusive
registration submit a complaint to an approved dispute-resolution service provider (see
below for a list and links).
