Rulings On Registration Abuse
For those who have registered under the ".uk" domain name, the United Kingdom High Court has
given a ruling that they will not be provided with a fresh hearing in court in order to determine
the validity of their registration if there has already been an industry dispute resolution service
As a dispute resolution service provider, Nominet is currently the body that handles .uk
addresses. According to Mr. Justice Mann, the way that the dispute resolution service policy and
procedural rules have been created implies that no court retrials are possible after decisions have
been made through Nominet's system.
On the other hand, the decision made by the Patents Country Court has been reversed
by the judge. This original decision states that it is the policy of Nominet to permit
courts to review issues that have passed through Nominet's system.
It is possible to go over the Nominet-registered domain names disputes by visiting
the UK courts or through the registry’s dispute resolution process.
