Internet Domain Names
Domain names are often used to identify services provided through the Internet, such as websites, email services and more.
The rapid expansion of the electronic marketplace of the Internet has contributed to a reconsideration of the way in which business organizations market their products and has created legal problems.
Domain Names are among the IP issues that courts deal with. Pirate industries use distinctive features of a well-known competitor of theirs as a domain name in order to absorb its clients or they register them as domain names without using them intending to resell them to their owner.
Kiortsis & Associates Law Offices specialises in obtaining, renewing and protecting Domain Names in any country. It is our task to support big enterprises and private individuals to secure their presence in the Internet and protect themselves from infringements of their Domain Name, which, most of the times, consists of their name or trademark.
The competent authority for the management of the Domain Names in Greece is the Hellenic Telecommunications & Post Commission (EETT in Greek).
