Training: Domain names and online abuse

Home > Products and services > Training > Training: Domain names and online abuse

Domain names constitute sources but also targets of malicious practices on the Internet, including cybersquatting, typosquatting and phishing. Yet specialists are still struggling to classify the numerous types of abuse to which they are subject and to act with the appropriate legal tools.

For domain name professionals it is imperative to master the legal context and the most appropriate solutions for identifying, preventing and putting a stop to these various kinds of abuse and thus support their clients in protecting and defending their rights (domain names, brands and trademarks, signs and logos, corporate names, etc.).

  • Define a domain name abuse in order to qualify it
