All games will now start at 7pm on a Thursday evening at the Kaikohe Memorial Hall. Club racquets are available for use on the night. Domain names disputes increasing Domain Name Commissioner Debbie Monahan talks about protecting your online identity. When someone asks for your address, what do you tell them? A few years ago it would have been your physical location, your home or your place of work. In 2011 it's just as likely to be your online address. It's part of a trend in which our online addresses are becoming central to our busi- ness and personal identities. It's also a reason why the Domain Name Commission's Dispute Resolution Service is dealing with a growing numbers of complaints about cyber squatting' and gener- ally blocking or disrupting the rightful use of addresses. Most of the complainants are what you might call the little guys', individuals or small businesses rather than large multinationals keen to protect their brands and identities. Identity and intellectual property protection can be as important to a sole trader and a start-up as to the biggest corporation. It's just a matter of scale. The patterns of use of the Dispute Resolution Service reflects the nature of New Zealand business -- more than 90 percent of New Zealand businesses have five or fewer employees. It also reflects the cost of resorting to legal action, which can be prohibi- tive and, in some instances, like cracking a nut with an unnecessarily large tool. Having said this we recom- mend that those planning to use the service discuss their complaint with a lawyer in the first instance. For many businesses, addressing a perceived wrong in relation to domain name ownership can be the differ- ence between thriving and barely surviving. This is par- ticularly when, for example, someone is sitting on a name you need for trading purposes (known as cybersquatting) or a competitor uses a name that may confuse and direct business away from yours. Cybersquatting is the most common cause of complaint. It's when an opportunistic registrant registers the name of your company or product in the hope of either selling the name to you, or of making money from advertising through the site. It's important to note there is a legitimate secondary domain name market which means it's perfectly okay to buy and sell domain names for a profit. But one must not do so in a way that infringes someone else's rights to own a particular domain name. A number of disputes come from within a company or partnership where, for example, a domain name was registered in the name of an individual rather than the company. This can lead to disputes over actual owner- ship if a partnership is dis- solved. Blocking a name or mark in which the complainant has rights is also relatively com- mon. This is when a domain name is registered by some- one who has no rights to it, thereby preventing the holder of the rights from registering and using that domain name. Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis but you can't take advantage of that to shut out someone who does have rights to a name. Domain name registrants must also not unfairly dis- rupt the business of another business. Names that are linked to the sites of competi- tors often fall into this category. The Domain Name Commission Ltd is respon- sible for the day-to-day over- sight of the .nz domain name space, authorising registrars, developing policies, com- pliance with policies and pro- tecting the rights and relationships. Visit the Commission's website, www.dnc. org.nz for any questions on domain names.
