Texas Domain Name Disputes

Dallas Domain Name Attorneys

Your trademark enables people to associate your business with its products and services. Registration, traffic in or use of a domain name that is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or dilutive of a famous mark with a bad faith intent to profit constitutes cybersquatting. A type of cybersquatting known as typosquatting is when a domain name is registered incorporating misspelled versions of another’s trademark.

At Gagnon, Peacock & Vereeke, P.C., our attorneys can help you protect your rights. To discuss your case in a free consultation, call us at (214) 317-4448 (toll free at 888-312-1750) or send us an e-mail.

Remedies of this proceeding include:

  • Cancellation of the domain name OR

Filing your complaint under the UDRP does not offer injunctive or monetary relief.
