When you register a domain name you agree that the name does not infringe upon or violate the rights of any third party and that you agree to participate in an arbitration-like proceeding should a claim be made against you.
A UDRP proceeding must establish three elements to succeed:
- The domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights;
- The registrant does not have any rights or legitimate interests in the domain name; and
- The registered domain name is being used in “bad faith”.
