What can I do if an fi-domain name registered by someone else violates my trademark or business name?
A holder of a protected name or trademark may submit a removal claim if it suspects that the fi-domain name violates its protected name or trademark. In this connection, the claiming party may also request the fi-domain name to be transferred to itself.
Domain names may, in principle, be freely chosen but the domain name holder is responsible that the domain name registration is lawful. FICORA can afterwards intervene in unlawfully registered fi-domain names by, for example, removing them from the domain name register.
