Protecting your online presence: Domain name disputes: ".com dispute resolution procedure
In addition to the .co.uk dispute process, all generic top level domains such as .com and .net have a Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) allowing the filing of a complaint against a domain name that has been registered AND is being used in bad faith. The hurdle is a little higher on a .com action in that you must prove the following three elements:
1. the domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which you have rights; and
2. the domain owner has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
3. the domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith." (read more at link above)
