CIIDRC CAN HELP:
- Business owners, organizations, and individuals whose registered trademark is being used as a domain name without their consent
- Domain name owners whose ownership is being challenged
- Intellectual-property counsel or trademark agents representing clients involved in domain name disputes
We have created an online platform to facilitate the resolution of domain name disputes under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). Our smart and intuitive platform is designed with a focus on the user’s experience and client support.
In order to help you navigate through the filing process, both the Complaint and the Response forms contain needed references to the UDRP, the UDRP Rules, and CIIDRC’s Supplemental Rules. Although filing a complaint and response does not require legal assistance, when substantive intellectual property rights are at stake, legal advice may be necessary.
Payments can be conveniently submitted via our online payment platform. There is a non-refundable filing fee of $425 US (tax included) when a Complaint is submitted. Panel fees will vary depending on the number of arbitrators appointed and the number of domain names in dispute.
In accordance with the Fee Schedule, Panel fees are payable at the time of the appointment and not in advance.
A step-by-step flow chart of the process can be found under the How it Works page.
