Salt Lake City, UT, October 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Website attorney Steven Rinehart
recently won several new UDRP domain name disputes involving common law trademarks. Rinehart successfully established common law trademarks rights for two attorneys who were the target of libelous criticism websites (e.g. gripe sites), those domain names being <kendrickmoxon.com>, a prominent California attorney; and <jonahhunt.com>, a Denver attorney. Rinehart represents clients in domain name disputes involving gTLDs before the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). His other recent domain name victories include the domain names: <excellencechocolate.com>, <greenhornetlighting.com>, and <acecapital.com>.
Utah patent attorney Steven Rinehart practices intellectual property law in the State of Utah, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and before the US Patent and Trademark Office. Winning these new UDRP domain name disputes adds to Rinehart’s already impressive list of accomplishments. Rinehart handles a wide variety of intellectual property matters, including preparation, prosecution and litigation matters such as filing utility patent and trademark applications, opposition proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB), reexamination proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), patent and trademark lawsuits in US district courts, Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) lawsuits, trade dress litigation, as well as UDRP URL disputes before the NAF and WIPO.
Because losses in UDRP domain name disputes must usually be appealed in the jurisdiction of the top-level domain registry, most UDRP appeals take place in the Eastern District of Virginia where VeriSign is located. VeriSign controls most of the gTLDs in the world including .com, .net, .info, and .org. Rinehart is a licensed Virginia patent attorney who practices in the Eastern District of Virginia for this reason, and who has experience in appealing UDRP matters there. Rhinehart’s recent UDRP domain name wins required both impressive legal skill, and experience. If you are a party to a UDRP case which must be appealed, or an attorney representing a party having lost a UDRP case, Rinehart can help you protect your rights in Virginia’s Eastern US District Court.
Rinehart commonly handles UDRP matters as well as ACPA matters involving typosquatting, domain names which have accidentally expired, domain names involving registered and common law trademarks, and domain name incorporating other forms of brand protection. If you are the victim of patent infringement lawsuits filed by patent trolls, Rinehart also commonly handles patent litigation matters in a variety of states.
