  • Use of a domain name is required in order to keep the registration effective
    • Each registrar has the flexibility to offer initial and renewal registrations in one-year increments, with a total registration period limit of 10 years
  • ICANN adopted the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) to govern trademark disputes between domain name registrants and third party complainants.
    • UDRP is required of all domain name registrants who register through an ICANN-approved registrar
    • When a domain name is registered with an ICANN-approved registrar, the registrant agrees to domain name dispute resolution through the UDRP
    • UDRP does not prevent a court of law from settling the dispute
