Other people’s rights
When you register a domain name, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions relevant to the TLD, which are separate to the contract with Safeserve.
The terms and conditions require that you declare that the registration does not infringe the rights of others – for example, their trademark rights. If a third party thinks that your domain registration takes unfair advantage of their rights they can sue you or take the dispute to the appropriate Dispute Resolution Service.
The duty not to interfere with third party rights applies to individuals and companies. Although a company may have traded with a similar name for many years – and, in the case of sole traders and partnerships, with exactly the same name – only one can use it as a domain name.
