Trademark Attorney Charles L. Riddle wins UDRP proceeding, and the domain name has been successfully transferred to the Brand Owner.
The Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) resolves disputes regarding the registration of Internet domain names. This legal process allows domain names to be quickly transferred to the rightful trademark owner. UDRP decisions are followed by all domain registrars, such as GoDaddy, 1 & 1, and Amazon.
