What are your options if someone else uses a .dk domain name to infringe your name or trademark rights? Or what if you believe that you are more entitled to the domain name than the other person who registered it?
Who has the right to a domain name?
The Danish Complaints Board for Domain Names handles cases concerning the right to use a given .dk domain name. For example, you may feel that you have special rights to a .dk domain name that has already been registered by someone else. The Complaints Board for Domain Names is an easy, faster and cheaper alternative to the courts in disputes of this nature, and can decide to suspend, delete or transfer the .dk domain name under complaint.
For more information about the Danish Complaints Board for Domain Names, see the Board’s website: www.domaeneklager.dk. You will also find instructions on how to submit a complaint here.
Of course, you are also entitled to bring a dispute about right of use of a .dk domain name before the ordinary courts. For more information about this, see the Danish courts’ website: www.domstol.dk.
Complaints to DK Hostmaster
In the event of typosquatting or persistent infringements of good domain name practice, a complaint about right of use of a .dk domain name may be addressed to DK Hostmaster. In such cases, we may decide to suspend and, subsequently, block, delete or transfer the domain name.
For more information about the terms of this rule, how to complain, and the criteria that must be met for you to succeed in your complaint, see the menu.
DK Hostmaster does not judge whether a domain name violates name or trademark rights or exploited for other irregularities at registration.
It is not legal to register a domain name with the purpose of selling it and profit on it.
