My .eu domain name was stolen. What are my options?
posted 3 years ago
I own a company in a small European country, with a simple name, say Generic, Pvt. Ltd. For years, I've had the domain generic. EU. However, I forgot to change my owner's email address for generic.EU - and this email was expired later. Recently, someone from a neighboring country acquired the expired email and gained control of generic.EU on EURid, thereby grabbing the domain transfer code, and ultimately transferring the domain to himself, with a different registrar.
Are his actions legal? Since my company name is Generic, Pvt ltd, therefore "generic" is my trademark and I have a right to generic.EU correct, especially since I have owned the domain for many years.
How do I get my domain back? Can I make a claim for compensation for business lost due to this illegal grab of my domain?"
