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. That's a significant change -- and a sign of how virtual our world is becoming. It's part of a trend in which our online addresses are becoming central to our business and personal identities. It's also a reason why the Domain Name Commission's dispute resolution service is deal- ing with a growing numbers of complaints about cyber squatting' and generally blocking or disrupting the rightful use of addresses. Most of the complain- ants are what you might call the little guys', individuals or small businesses rather than, as many people believe, large multinationals keen to protect their brands and identities. Identity and intellec- tual property protection can be as important to a sole trader and a start- up as to the biggest cor- poration. It's just a mat- ter 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 pro- hibitive and, in some instances, like cracking a nut with an unnecess- arily large tool. Having said this we recommend that those planning to use the ser- vice discuss their com- plaint with a lawyer in the first instance. For many businesses, addressing a perceived wrong in relation to domain name ownership can be the difference between thriving and barely surviving. This applies when, for example, someone is sit- ting on a name you need for trading purposes, known as cybersquat- ting, or a competitor uses a name that may con- fuse, 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 sell- ing 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 within .nz which means it's perfectly OK to buy and sell domain names for a profit. It's just that one must not do so in a way that infringes someone else's rights to own a particular domain name. A surprising number of disputes come from within a company or partnership where, for example, a domain name was registered, either deliberately or acciden- tally, in the name of an individual rather than the company. This can lead to disputes over actual ownership if a partnership is dissolved or a staff member leaves and wishes to keep the domain name. Blocking a name or mark in which the com- plainant has rights is also relatively common. This is when a domain name is registered by someone who has no rights to it, thereby preventing the holder of the rights from register- ing and using that domain name. Domain names are registered on a first- come, first-served basis, but you can't take advan- tage of that to shut out someone who does have rights to a name. The Domain Name Commission Ltd is responsible for the day-to- day oversight of the .nz domain name space.
