Santoni Investigations, a leader in intellectual property investigations and domain name acquisitions, reveals the best time to call on an investigation firm to acquire a domain name.
When the domain name needed is already registered, parked or being used by another business don’t give up hope. There are creative ways to acquire domain names that businesses vitally need to execute their marketing plans and drive traffic to their web properties.
If cost mitigation, proving evidence of cyber-squatting and un-masking who the true owner of the domain name are an issue for you and your IP counsel then an investigation firm can be brought in to assist.
The Santoni acquisition team provides clients with information regarding the value of the domain name, identifies the owner (privatized registrations) and has a proven negotiation process. When a proper valuation is conducted, the domain name owner/decision maker is identified and a sound negotiation strategy is used the client can obtain the domain names they need while mitigating cost and saving time.
In the process of conducting the domain name acquisition the Santoni team often develops evidence to support an Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Action (ACPA) or Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) action should those remedies be necessary to secure a domain name.
Additionally, an investigation firm with a global footprint that partners with registrars can provide localization requirements necessary to secured Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLD).
