Lawyers attack Nominet plan for domain name disputes

Nominet has proposed a change in the way that name disputes are handled, but the proposed fast-track system faces criticism for not being radical enough says Out-Law.com.Out-Law.com goes on to say, Nominet is consulting on a plan to streamline the dispute resolution process so that unopposed disputes are automatically resolved in favour of the party claiming a right to the domain name. This is designed to help legitimate rights holders to reclaim domain names held by cybersquatters, who rarely defend against such claims.But while the new plan could save someone trying to claim a name £550, it will not save them the more significant expense of preparing a full case, with all the management time and legal bills that that is likely to involve.The move is designed to help brand holders to cope with the rocketing problems of cybersquatters and domainers who register thousands of domains at a time and generally do not oppose attempts by rights holders to take the domain names back.To read the full article in Out-Law.com, see out-law.com/page-8481
