Domain disputes
Domain disputes with trademarks by zone COM, NET, ORG, BIZ, INFO, MOSCOW zones and all the generic top-level domains (GURU, TV, FM, NAME, PRO etc.) according to the UDRP rules in WIPO

In contrast to the Russian practice of considering domain disputes through the courts, the world community uses an alternative system for domain dispute resolving – (Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy - UDRP). This system is focused on resolving disputes between trademark holders and domain owners and is a mandatory part of registrars ' contracts with domain name administrators for all generic top-level domains (more than 2,000) and for many national top-level domains (more than 80).

According to the UDRP rules, the applicant must prove three facts in their entirety:
• your domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and
• you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
• your domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.
A positive outcome of the UDRP dispute resolution is a decision either to terminate the registration of the domain name or to transfer it to the trademark owner. The enforceability of decisions is ensured by the domain name registrar under the threat of termination of its detail as a domain name registrar.
