INTA Releases Toolkit for WHOIS Challenges

Published: June 22, 2018

INTA published WHOIS Challenges: A Toolkit for Intellectual Property Professionals to help trademark professionals navigate the new world of online enforcement under changes to the WHOIS global database of domain name registrants. The changes limit access to important information which, until recently, was publicly available, and enabled trademark professionals to locate and contact registrants behind websites engaged in counterfeiting, identity theft, and other criminal activities. INTA continues to advocate for an accessible, contactable and accurate WHOIS global database. The toolkit is available here, and more information on INTA’s response to the changes in the WHOIS database is available here.
