"How can I protect my trademark on the internet?"

Trademarks
In this rubric, the basics regarding Intellectual Property will be explained. #YouAskWeAnswer. We have shifted our focus from patents to trademarks.

First come first serve

When registering a trademark you would be wise to check the availability of your trademark directly online. Where possible, also register it as a domain name immediately. With domain names, it is a matter of ‘first come, first served’. Anyone can register a random domain name.

WIPO

Have you experienced any misuse of your trademark online? For instance, has someone else claimed your trademark as a domain name? In such circumstances, our advisors can provide support and if necessary instigate arbitration proceedings at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in order to transfer or remove the infringing domain name. Your trademark could be used to in€uence the search results of search engines , e.g. by means of Google AdWords. Whether this is permitted depends on the circumstances.

Social media

Is your trademark being used in social media without your consent? The possibilities to abuse your trademark on the Internet are constantly changing. As are the opportunities to act against this abuse. We will be happy to advise you in such cases.
