What Should I do if My Domain Name is already taken

If the domain name you want for yourself is registered to another business that also has a good claim to use it, then your only option is to find another domain name. But if it is a case of passing off, then the domain law is in your favour.

Passing off is when a competitor registers a domain name that is similar to your trademark. It is a dirty practice that is not allowed by internet law. If this is the case, you can either take court action or start a dispute resolution procedure. That way you can have the domain transferred to you.
