What do I do if someone infringes my domain name?

Although the same domain name cannot be registered twice, it is still recommended to regularly check that nobody has registered a domain name similar to yours that might infringe your rights. The sooner you find out, the sooner you can react.

Check whether or not the infringement was done in bad faith. If it was, you can start an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedure or sometimes even a judicial procedure to reclaim your domain name. You could also always try first to contact the domain name holder and ask them to sell the domain name to you (see step 5).
