Successful Recovery Solutions That Save Time And Money
No business can escape some level of trademark infringement in the domain name space, making access to domain recovery services a vital part of any corporate domain management strategy. Markmonitor has proven expertise and a long, successful track record of assisting our clients in recovering domain names, from offering anonymous domain acquisitions to providing UDRP and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services that are cost-effective alternatives to expensive lawsuits.
Domain recovery generally falls into two main categories: rights-based options and non-rights-based options.
Easy domain registration in low-cost gTLDS has resulted in an associated scale of cybersquatting that does not appear to be slowing down. UDRP can offer a faster and more cost-effective alternative to expensive lawsuits for the recovery of domain names that include trademarked terms or variations thereof. In fact, UDRP filings have risen 56% since 2019.
Markmonitor provides a variety of cost-effective UDRP services. These include a straightforward solution that covers data gathering, evidence collection, preparation, submission, and transfer of awarded domains for uncomplicated cases. and for more complex cases, we also offer expert review and consultation with a third-party attorney to ensure that you receive the level of service you require for the best outcome.

What Is UDRP?
In 1999, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) established the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy based on recommendations from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
This policy serves as an alternative to litigation for trademark infringement in domains such as cybersquatting. The UDRP provides an expedited administrative procedure allowing domain name disputes to be resolved without the usual cost and delays encountered in court litigation.
