Domains

A good trademark strategy also encompasses the corresponding internet domains.  It should be kept in mind that trademark names are often entered as search terms in internet search engines, which means that it is vital that your trademark can be found on the internet or a particular internet domain.

On the other hand, unauthorized use of certain terms or signs on the internet can constitute a trademark infringement.

Our lawyers and patent attorneys specializing in this field will be pleased to provide you with comprehensive legal and technical advice.

We assist you in searching existing domains and inquiring about their legal status.  If required, we also take legal action for securing and enforcing your rights.  In this regard, ADR proceedings (Alternative Dispute Resolution) before the WIPO (e.g. for .com domains) or the Czech Arbitration Court (for .eu domains) or proceedings before German courts (for .de domains) may be considered as options.
