The owner of hallmark can only open a dispute trough ATF and try to win and attain a transfer of that registered domain name to itself. The aim with my thesis is to present several ATF – cases about registered domain names that are identical or similar with someone’s firm- or brand name. The purpose is to examine which possibilities an owner of a hallmark has to have success in a dispute. This thesis is also going to present cases where it is not possible to win a dispute and examine why the matter resulted in negative verdict. The last question I’m going to analyze is if Swedish rules about domain names should develop or change in order to protect owner of a protected hallmark in a better way. (Less)
