Because domain names allow companies to position themselves in a competitive space and differentiate themselves from other economic players in the sector just like brands, the IPSIDE firm has recently launched a domain names and Digital department.
Our specialized team is able to offer a trademark filing strategy correlated together with a domain name reservation strategy.
It will also assist you in determining a URL and relevant extensions depending on your structure and markets of interest. It carries out prior use searches for domain names, domain name reservations as well as renewals, registering your trademarks with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), advising and assisting you in your buying or selling negotiations of your domain names, etc.
Our team is also competent to defend your rights on the Internet because it is clear that with the proliferation of domain names extensions and Internet users, many conflicts arise. It is therefore necessary to remain vigilant and defend our trademarks and domain names against new threats such as cybersquatting, typosquatting, dotsquatting, dashsquatting, etc. and our team is here to help you do so, in particular through web content monitoring.
Such monitoring allows us to quickly detect illegal uses of your trademarks, your logos, your models and forthwith file complaints with the Arbitration Centres such as AFNIC for .fr (SYRELI proceedings), the Czech [Arbitration] Court for .eu (ADR proceedings) and WIPO for a number of extensions (UDRP proceedings).
In this way, our team responds to limit customer diversion as well as attacks on your company’s reputation.
The Domain Names and Digital Department can also take measures with social networks to shut down illegitimate profiles or on trading platforms to stop sales of counterfeit products.
Finally, our team of legal experts can support you in the creation of your website by writing legal notices, general conditions of sale and use, cookie scripts and other tracers and proposing security measures for your websites to prevent piracy.
Don’t hesitate to reach out to our experts.
These same advisors take the opportunity to inform you of the availability of the new extension: .shop.
This extension is very interesting for stakeholders in e-commerce or those in traditional trade.
Equally important is blocking and thus preventing a malicious third party from reserving your brand followed by the extension .shop.
Finally, please note that .boutique and .store extensions are still possible and that .store is at a discount until August 14, 2016!
Next up, .shopping...
