Because the Internet is a cornerstone of global commerce, trademark and domain name protection are increasingly high priority concerns of our clients. We respond to by offering watch services. This vital component of our legal counsel will uncover third parties who register domain names that are confusingly similar to the legitimate domain name.
We also provide counsel regarding the available strategies for countering the “cyber squatter” benefitting from your trademark’s good will. To wrest an illegitimately registered domain name from a cyber squatter, CPH may pursue the traditional route of litigation in court. In the alternative, action through the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) arbitration system can be a viable, cost-effective, and practical strategy. We have an industry-leading success rate with more than 150 UDRP complaints filed with the National Arbitration Forum.
In addition to the protection of trademarks in domain names, we offer specialized patenting services for computer software, algorithms, and business methods. Several CPH attorneys have degrees in computer science or computer engineering, combined with experience in software development and design. Our ability to understand, thoroughly, the issues facing engineers, programmers, and designers in the computer technology sector enables us to secure the broadest protection possible for you.
