  • - a trade name or secondary name;

  • - an artist’s name (if the name is not associated with someone who deceased a long time ago);
  • - a title of another party’s copyrighted literary or artistic work;
  • - a name that is protected by the Regulation concerning Certain Official Designations (1976:100); or
  • - the name of a government authority that is listed in the registry that Statistics Sweden must maintain under the Swedish Code of Statutes SFS 2007:755 (Government Agencies Register Ordinance), or its generally accepted abbreviation,

When filing a .SE petition, the petitioner may opt for an accelerated proceeding, which will take place if the respondent fails to respond to the petition

The Registry will implement a panel decision to transfer or cancel a domain name after 14 days (as opposed to 10 business days under the UDRP), unless the Registry is informed by the domain holder that he or she has initiated action claiming greater rights to the domain name
