Some jurisdictions recognize that a domain name may function as a trade mark
and one may claim exclusive rights in a domain name in those jurisdictions.
Other jurisdictions do not recognize this right. Entities entrusted with the
registration of domain names have a dispute resolution policy that affords a
means of resolving conflicts between trade marks and domain names.
There are jurisdictions that do no explicitly contemplate the resolution of
conflicts between marks and domain names or the claiming of rights over
domain names. In case some of the limiting rules of the domain name
registration set by the entities that are entrusted with the responsibility
of registering and managing them within each jurisdiction, are disregarded,
the prejudiced party may file an action in court against the owner of the
domain in order to prevent its use.
