| Domain Name, Keyword, Meta Tag and Translation Services
At A&A, we find solutions to protect domain names which may be incapable of obtaining trademark registrations.
Internet Domain names can be sometimes generic; sometimes capable of functioning as a trademark; and sometimes infringe on the rights of others. At A&S, we are adept at handling domain name disputes when new registrations bear similarities in the look, sound, meaning or spelling to other, more senior trademark proprietors.
Whether it be celebrity names, fan sites, or business competitors, we can help negotiate the sale or transfer of disputed domains. In cases of infringement, our clients may follow the Uniform Dispute Resolution Arbitration procedures available for domain name disputes, or where possible, may seek to file an infringement action in court.
We take aggressive action against cybersquatters, meta taggers, hyperlinkers and other Internet pirates.
We take aim against unfair competition caused by unscrupulous operators who prey on third-party trademarks to boost their web traffic through the use of infringing keywords and metatags.
TRADEMARK TRANSLATION and TRANSLITERATION SERVICES
In a crowded world of words, can you afford to find out too late that your proposed company, brand or domain name has been a registered trademark and/or domain name in another language? Can you afford to defend an infringement action, or to withstand an international marketing blunder caused by failure to consider the possible translations and transliterations of your company name?
FAQ- WHY ARE TRANSLATION SERVICES A GOOD IDEA?
There are many examples of companies wasting time and money adopting a name that is essentially the same as another name translated. For instance, the strength of the ESPRIT line of clothing would make it a foolhardy decision to adopt SPIRIT for clothing since it is a mere English translation of the French word.
DON'T GO THERE . . .
Adopting a name without checking on the potential language translations can be both painful and humorous as GM executives learned after they launched their NOVA line of CHEVROLET cars. While Chevys were traditionally popular in Latin American countries, the NOVA was an unusually hard sell, since NO-VA means literally in Spanish: "Does not go, Will not go."
