The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the private sector, non-profit corporation responsible for databases related to the namespaces of the Internet and for guaranteeing the Internet’s stability and security. Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig counsels and represents our business clients regarding disputes handled under the ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). Disputes regarding domain names can emerge from legitimate commercial competition as well as from misunderstandings and business opportunism. Misunderstandings are common regarding the rules governing the registration and use of domain names.
