Domain Names

Identity and brand protection online can not be ignored. Our lawyers ensure client IP rights are protected by assisting with the selection, protection, and enforcement of domain names. This includes reviewing websites to ensure client trade marks, copyright and other IP assets are not inadvertently diminished or infringed.

Axis Legal is recognised in the industry as a specialist in eCommerce.

Over the past 10 years, our domain name specialist lawyers have been involved in the development of .au policies and as experienced mediators we continue to contribute through our involvement in education initiatives (including those run by auDA).

Our lawyers have acted for major international companies in the roll out of their online presence through the acquisition of domain names across the globe, as well as acting to protect their global trade mark portfolios.

We regularly advise on Australian and international domain name issues including:

  • infringement and hijacking dispute resolution and litigation
  • acquisition and sale of domain names
  • due diligence and domain name management services
  • strategic registration and protection advice
  • domain monetisation

Axis Legal represent clients with local and global domain name arbitration under the .au Domain Resolution Policy (auDRP) and the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).
