The Business of Online Business: Session One - Domain Names and Domain Name Disputes

Program Number: 2941 Presenter: Shari Claire Lewis, Esq.

Every business with a website is an e-business and, as a result, face challenges that are unique to online commerce and twists on traditional ones.

We will explore the explosive growth of top-level domains as potential new “neighborhoods” in the virtual world. We will also cover cybersquatting and reverse cybersquatting, which continue to impact domain name use, and the variety of venues where a claim may be heard. We will review recent criteria that courts and dispute resolution groups consider in assessing whether a domain name registration has an improper commercial purpose, as well as the various dispute resolution practices offered by the domain name registrars as potential alternatives

FINRA arbitrations bear some resemblance to litigation, but there are significant differences, such as limited discovery and motion practice, relaxed rules of evidence, and no appellate rights. These limitations emphasize the importance of persuasively presenting a client’s case, themes, and evidence at the hearing. A skilled trial lawyer should not view these limitations as a weakness but use them to his or her advantage in representing the client.
