International seminar: Domain name dispute resolution

Place: Albert Hotel, Dzirnavu iela 33, Riga
Time: 16 Feb 2011 09:00 - 12:30
Working language: English, Latvian

SORAINEN Latvia partner Agris Repšs and lawyer Andris Tauriņš delivered a presentation on "Issues related to domain name disputes in Latvia" at a seminar devoted to domain name dispute resolution on 16 February. The seminar was organised by SORAINEN in cooperation with the Latvian Council of Sworn Advocates and the Czech Arbitration Court, the dispute resolution provider for .eu and generic top level domain names.

In recent years, holders of intellectual property rights have been facing a specific form of rights infringement – unauthorised domain name registration. In combating these wrongful acts, traditional legal instruments do not always provide an efficient solution, particularly in cross-border disputes. This has brought about creation and development of alternative dispute resolution systems. Quick, efficient and cost saving, these procedures continue to serve as so far unmatched means of protecting intellectual property rights in domain name matters, while still giving fair trial guarantees to all parties to a dispute.

The seminar focused on alternative dispute resolution procedures in .eu (ADR) and in generic top level domain names (UDRP – .com, .org, .net and many others) as well as on dispute resolution related to .lv domain names.

The seminar was held in English without translation, except for Mr Repšs's and Mr Tauriņš's presentation which was in Latvian. For a detailed seminar programme, please click here.
