If you don't qualify yourself, it may be tempting to own the domains to use the services of a third party.
However, is it the right choice ? There are two main issues with this approach:
Google, the American public corporation,has lost an arbitration over the domain name Groovle.com.
Google contended in the complaint that the dispute domain name is confusingly similar to its trademark.
Small Canadian start-up claims victory.
Domain hijacking is the process of transferring ownership of a domain name without the permission of the registrant (domain owner). This is usually done by hacking into their registrar account or tricking them into giving away their password, by pretending to be their registrar.
Reverse domain hijacking is where someone tries to claim the rights to a domain and use legal threats or UDRP (Uniform Domain Name Resolution Policy) action to have a domain transferred to them from the current owner who also has full right to own and the same domain.
A Miami lawyer has filed a class-action lawsuit against domain name auction site SnapNames.com, after the company announced that a former employee was bidding against potential customers in domain name auctions.
Attorney Santiago Cueto filed the lawsuit Monday in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court on behalf of his brother, Carlos Cueto, and others who participated in SnapNames.com's online auctions. The lawsuit alleges that a former vice president at SnapNames.com secretly bid on tens of thousands of domain name auctions over the past four years, leading to falsely inflated prices.
