The rise of the internet as a limitless forum of commerce and ideas has changed the way companies around the world do business. Domain names enable consumers and potential customers to enter into contact with businesses over the internet. Others take this as an opportunity to improperly benefit from other businesses’ fame and reputation.

Lydian’s IP team assists clients with the selection, protection, and enforcement of domain names. In doing so, the team balances the remedies desired by the client with the interest in quickly resolving any dispute.

The team drafts take-down notices and complaints in respect of improper use of search engine keywords and conduct cease-and-desist procedures against online infringers and cybersquatters. In addition to national court proceedings, the Lydian’s IP team has experience in handling Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceedings as well as national Dispute Resolution Proceedings.
