MYNIC has several administrative processes in place to deal with different types of “.my” related domain name complaints. These administrative processes are simpler, faster and more affordable when compared to taking legal action.
This is a process that allows a complainant to challenge the registration of a “.my” domain name where the complainant believes that the registered “.my” domain name is (1) identical/similar to the third party’s trade/service mark, and (2) is used in “bad faith” by the registrant. Where the complainant is successful in establishing its case, the disputed “.my” domain name will be transferred to the complainant. The MYDRP is run by the Regional Centre For Arbitration Kuala Lumpur. More details are available at https://www.aiac.world.
