How are domain name disputes resolved? What are the latest trends in domain dispute decisions? Which brands are filing complaints successfully or unsuccessfully?

Get answers to these and many more questions by following Steve Levy’s popular and highly-informative blogs. You won’t find this level of expert analysis anywhere else on the Internet. Tackling domain name and social media infringement requires a very specific type of legal expertise, and Steve’s weekly blog is here to help, from analysis of recent UDRP cases and URS cases in plain English as well as information on all other acronyms and topics related to cybersquatting and usersquatting.

Steve, an attorney with over 23 years of experience practicing law, manages FairWinds’ Domain Name Reclaim Services. He provides clients with a cost effective and reliable means of prioritizing infringing domain names and then recovering them in the most efficient manner.

Prior to joining FairWinds, Steve was a Senior Director at The Home Depot’s Legal Department for ten years, where he managed the company’s global trademark, domain name, patent, copyright, and other intellectual property holdings. Prior to that, Steve was a Senior Associate at the New York office of Proskauer Rose LLP; Trademark Counsel at Sony Corporation in Tokyo, Japan; and an Associate at Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein in New York. Steve holds a law degree from Brooklyn Law School and currently resides in Philadelphia, PA.

He’s written many, many blogs on UDRP cases but here are a few of the most popular:

  • Bald Assertions And .EMAIL Yoyos: In this post, Steve considers a complaint filed by Sheraton and two of its affiliates over sheraton.email and sheratonparklane.email.
  • If You Can’t Make It, Fake It: Dunkin Donuts files a complaint against a familiar respondent and the defense is rather, well, creative, as Steve explains.
  • Decision Opens Time Portal to UDRP Success: There’s more to establishing use in “bad faith” than you might think, and Steve does a great job of breaking it down in relation to a decision over Big5.com.
