Dispute Resolution Policy

Variation of UDRP

Paragraph 7 of the Terms and Conditions of registration (the “.SE Policy”)

Relevant differences between the UDRP and the .SE Policy

Whereas the UDRP is limited to the protection of trademark rights, under the .SE Policy a petitioner must claim that a disputed domain name is identical or similar to (Paragraph 7.2 of the .SE Policy):

  • - a trade symbol (trademark or service mark);
  • - a trade name or secondary name;
  • - a surname;
  • - 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 (2019:167); 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,

which is legally recognized in Sweden and to which the party requesting dispute resolution can prove its rights

It is sufficient for the petitioner to prove that either registration or use of the domain name is in bad faith, whereas the UDRP requires the complainant to prove both

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

Parties’ pleadings may be submitted in either Swedish or English;  the decision will be rendered in the language used in 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
