Domain names

France

Since a company's digital migration is now taken for granted, along with trademarks, domain names now constitute key elements of visibility and development. Although the frequency of domain name reservation is constantly increasing, the strategic and economic impact of these new intangible assets is still largely underestimated. However they are already giving rise to major disputes in line with the increase in cybersquatting (abusive domain name registration). Their acquisition, management and protection are governed by strict procedures likely to require the use of specific dispute resolution procedures. Given the challenges, cutting-edge support is required for all of these issues.
