Domain Disputes



ICM Registry has created specialized dispute resolution policies to help proceed
against unauthorized registrants.

RES

  • Protects Registered Trademarks
  • Protects Personal Names
  • Protects Professional “Stage” Names
  • Must be able to prove name was registered and is being used in bad faith (or if not yet used – must prove that it is not conceivable that it could be used in good faith)

Time Frame

Initial Results: 2 Business Days

Result

Successful complaints result in the .XXX domain name being removed from use by anyone; the name becomes “registry reserved” in perpetuity.

Cost

$1,300 (NAF is the only provider of this service)

CEDRP

  • Protects against registration or use that is not in compliance with the .XXX Sponsored Community criteria
  • Protects against registration or use of a .XXX name that was obtained in Sunrise A by someone without eligibility to do so

Time Frame

On average: 30 Calendar Days

Result

Successful complaints result in the .XXX domain name being cancelled from the “at fault” registrant. The .XXX domain name then becomes generally available.

Cost

$1,300 (NAF is the only provider of this service)

ICANN UDRP

  • Protects trademark owners (registered and non-registered trademarks)
  • Must be able to prove that the domain name was registered and used in bad faith

Time Frame

On average: 40 Calendar Days

Result

Successful complaints result in the .XXX domain name being transferred from the “at fault” registrant to the party who initiated the UDRP.

Cost

$1,300 - $2,600 ++ (NAF and WIPO are the most used providers of this service)

Dispute Resolution

RES

This policy protects trademarks from online infringement. If someone registered a .XXX domain name that is identical or confusingly similar to a registered trademark or an actual name or stage name - without the rights to do so – you can proceed against them under the Rapid Evaluation Service (RES: http://icmregistry.com/policies/res-policy).

The National Arbitration Forum (NAF) is the dispute resolution provider; the fees for this are $1,300. A successful complainant does not get the name transferred to them, but instead the name itself gets removed from the pool of available names and cannot be registered by anyone; in some cases, you can get this issue resolved within 2 business days.

CEDRP

This policy challenges the eligibility of a .XXX domain name owner. If someone registered a .XXX domain name without eligibility to do so - you can proceed against them under the Charter Eligibility Dispute Resolution Policy (CEDRP: http://icmregistry.com/policies/cedrp-policy).

The National Arbitration Forum (NAF) is the dispute resolution provider; the fees for this are $1,300. A successful complainant does not get the name transferred to them, but instead the name itself gets deleted from the unauthorized party and becomes a part of the general pool of available names and can be registered.

ICANN UDRP

This policy was designed to combat trademark infringement and cybersquatting. If someone has registered a trademark as a .XXX domain name in bad faith – you can proceed against them under the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP: http://www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/policy.htm).
