Cybersquatting continues to comprise one of the prevalent forms of intellectual property infringement; last year WIPO reported that the previous 12 months alone had seen a record- breaking 3,447 cases filed under the UDRP. As different trends of internet abuse emerge, panellists are adapting to the changing landscape. Many retailers are still unsure as to the basis for taking action under the various policies relating to domain names as well as timescale, cost and how best to put together a cost-effective complaint.

In this module we will provide highly practical guidance in this area ranging from the high level monitoring and triaging of potentially problematic third party registrations through to the nuts and bolts of complaint preparation.
