This program, presented by experienced IP practitioner David S. Safran of Roberts Mlotkowski Safran Cole and Calderon, PC will discuss the required components of an ICANN Domain Name Dispute Complaint and how to conduct and defend such a dispute. The program will also explore what to do in the following common scenarios: (1) the domain name registered by respondent is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which complainant has rights; (2) respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; or (3) the domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith. Mr. Safran will also address the most frequently asked questions in this arena.
