    Copyright and Dispute Policy

  19. Registration of the Domain Name by the Registry does not confer any legal rights to that name and any disputes between parties over the right to use a particular name. In case of a dispute between registrants as to the rights to a particular domain name, the Registry will have no role or responsibility other than to provide the contact information to both parties.

    If you believe a domain name registrant is using a domain name in a manner that infringes upon, dilutes or otherwise harms any of your rights, you should contact the Registrant directly. Registry provides registrant contact information through our Whois database on the site.
