So IEDR whacks you with their exhorbitant fees,Â but when push comes to shove, they bail out and try and shove the responsibility for domain squatting back on the CRO.
The CRO is of course absolutely right,
â€œWe spoke to the CRO and asked them what conditions they apply to awarding an RBN. They must have a business address in Ireland and this condition appears to have been met. The CROâ€™s official position is that it is a matter for the patent holder or trademark holder and the remedy is the civil courts. There is also the option of dispute resolution adjudicated by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO),â€? Curtin said.
So, if its the responsibility of the civil courts, why is the IEDR charging for service that it is not responsible for and cannot enforce?
