Our firm represents domain name owners who have been accused of cybersquatting and trademark owners whose trademarks have been infringed by a cybersquatter.

Minnesota Cybersquatting Law

In Minnesota, the main law governing cybersquatting is the United States Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. In additional, federal and Minnesota statutes govern trademark infringement and trademark dilution.

Minnesota Cybersquatting Dispute Resolution

Cybersquatting disputes are usually resolved prior to a lawsuit or the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) through a settlement negotiation.

The process usually involves sending a Cease and Desist Letter or representing an alleged cybersquatter by responding to a Cease and Desist Letter. Then the attorneys negotiate a resolution among the domain name owner and the trademark owner.
