Domain infringement—the use of look-alike websites and similar domain names to create sites that siphon traffic and revenue from legitimate brands—is on the rise. An explosion in the number of new Internet addresses has created a wealth of opportunities for criminals and makes it increasingly difficult for brands and their legal teams to keep up with domain squatters stealing traffic and revenue.
Corsearch domain infringement solutions deliver comprehensive domain intelligence. Our platform empowers brand protectors to swiftly detect domain squatters, identify the most dangerous threats, generate the evidence needed to take action, and automate enforcement.
Opportunities to mishandle domain names include errors in registration and related processes, failure to comply with the transfer policy, and poor administration of domain names by registrars, resellers, and registrants. With the release of thousands of new gTLDs, multiple registries and registrars, and a constant flow of new domain names and expirations, brands face a major challenge to monitor, manage, and protect their valuable domain names.
Managing a large domain name portfolio is an extremely complex, resource-intensive endeavor that is often handled in the background of IT, marketing, and corporate legal departments. This creates a risky environment where, in the tracking expiration dates, ownership, and renewals, the left hand may not know what the right hand is not doing. Your domain names are too important to your business to be an afterthought.
Domain names have become some of the most valuable assets major brands possess. Yet protecting them is often decentralized and under-prioritized, creating a needless risk of serious domain name loss or misuse.
