Traverse City, Michigan (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
Domain name theft is an ever-increasing reality for any individual or business that owns a domain name. And combating this digital crime is a difficult task because many times few, if any, digital fingerprints are left behind. In the last year, Revision Legal, an intellectual property and Internet law firm with extensive experience in domain theft, has recovered 486 domain names worth over $3.5 million.
“There is a strong upward trend in the number of domain name theft cases,” said John Di Giacomo, a partner at Revision Legal. “Often times, overseas hackers target a specific domain portfolio, obtain unauthorized access to the owner’s email, and gain entry to the owner’s registrar account where they can freely and quickly transfer the domains into their own possession.”
Domain name theft can leave unsuspecting victims lost as their property has literally vanished. Often times, domain owners do not realize the loss until days or weeks later. Revision Legal files lawsuits across the country to recover stolen domain.
“Litigating domain name theft issues is an extremely complex puzzle. It is a prime example of technology outpacing the law,” said Eric Misterovich, partner at Revision Legal. “Many states recognize domain names as what we believe they are: property. And when someone steals your property, you should have the right to swift civil remedies.”
Revision Legal’s results include recovering extremely valuable three and four letter domain names. These domains are either used an investment or create regular advertising revenue.
“We thoroughly enjoy solving these complex puzzles and returning domain names to our clients,” said Di Giacomo.
