À propos des litiges en matière de noms de domaine

Cette page est disponible en:

Si un nom de domaine a été enregistré dans un nom générique de premier niveau (gTLD) exploité en vertu d'un contrat conclu avec l'ICANN et que vous croyez que ledit enregistrement peut enfreindre votre marque déposée, vous pouvez mettre en place une procédure UDRP (politique commune de résolution de litiges en matière de noms de domaine) contre le registrant. (Consultez la rubrique remplir une UDRP pour en savoir plus.)

Pour des litiges en matière de noms de domaine non liés à des marques déposées, d'autres alternatives sont possibles :

  • Arriver à un accord avec le registrant actuel
  • Attendre et voir si le registrant actuel laisse expirer le nom de domaine.
  • Porter plainte devant les tribunaux contre le registrant actuel.

L'ICANN n'est pas compétentes pour démarches et n'a pas vocation à fournir un avis juridique. Vous auriez intérêt à obtenir un avis juridique avant de décider laquelle des alternatives ci-dessus convient le mieux à une situation en particulier.

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as"""" is not an IDN."
