The most current .dm domains dispute policy can be found at: nic.dm/policies/pdf/DMDispute2014.pdf

Commonwealth of Dominica ccTLD (.dm)

This DISPUTE POLICY ("Policy") is incorporated by reference into the DOT DM Corporation (“DOT DM”) Registration Agreement.

This Policy applies to registration of .dm domain names and to disputes between Users and any third parties in relation to infringement of any rights of such third parties arising from the registration of .dm domain names.

DOT DM will register .dm country code Top Level Domain names (“ccTLDs”), and handle disputes concerning the same as follows:

1. DOT DM's Automated Registration Process. DOT DM contracts the maintenance of the master database for the .dmccTLD, and is responsible for accreditation of registrars who process applications to register second level and prescribed third level .dm domain names (each .dm domain name is herein referred to as a "Domain"). Any natural person over the age of 18 years, and any legally recognized entity, is eligible to register a Domain through DOT DM and become the "Registrant" of the respective Domain. A prospective registrant may register any .dm Domain provided the requested Domain is not already registered or administratively unavailable. Once the Domain is registered, for the agreed term, no other party will be permitted to register the same Domain and the Registrant will have an exclusive licence for use of the Domain, subject to any order of a Court in an applicable Jurisdiction to the contrary, so long as the Registrant pays its fees for the Domain, and complies with all DOT DM Policies and the DOT DM Registration Agreement.
2. DOT DM Is Not Liable for Domain Infringing Rights of Third Parties. DOTDM is not liable or otherwise responsible for loss or damages or the potential for irreparable harm caused by use, display, exploitation, or registration of a Domain that may infringe upon a third party's rights, defame, cause a likelihood of deception or confusion among consumers, or in any other way injure or offend any party. By way of example, and not limitation, DOT DM is not liable for any claim or damages arising out of registration, display, exploitation, or use of a Domain that may infringe upon, tarnish, blur, or dilute the distinctiveness of a trademark, nor is DOT DM liable for a Domain that is identical or confusingly similar to the name of a famous person or the trade name of a well known enterprise. DOT DM may take action in accordance with the DOT DM Acceptable Use Policy (“AUP”) when the use of a Domain infringes the provisions and requirements of the AUP. In the event that a dispute arises with a third party with respect to rights to a Domain, the Registrant shall indemnify and hold harmless DOT DM; pursuant to the terms and conditions of the DOT DM Registration Agreement.
3. Consumer Protection; Fair Trading Practices. If the Registrant is using a .dm domain to sell goods or services over the Internet, it may be required under certain applicable Laws to publicly provide sufficient and accurate contact details on such website so that consumers have the ability to contact the seller of such goods or services. In the event that a .dm domain name registrant does not follow such Laws and recommendations, DOT DM will provide the contact details for the registrant in accordance with Section 5 below.
4. Domain Contact Information Request in the event of Domain Disputes. Any person, entity or third party who believes that registration of a Domain has been obtained by the Registrant in contravention of the third party's legal rights, or that a Domain is being, or has been, used in contravention of such party's legal rights should complete a Dispute Policy Enforcement Form. DOT DM will provide Registrant information to a third party provided the request is consistent with the DOT DM Privacy Policy. A nominal administration fee may apply.

If any person, entity or third party who believes that registration of a Domain has been obtained by the Registrant in contravention of the third party's legal rights, or that aDomain is being, or has been, used in contravention of such party's legal rights, such third party may commence legal proceedings against the Registrant in a court in a relevant jurisdiction, seeking orders for the cancellation or transfer of the Domain. DOT DM shouldnot be named as a party to any such proceeding, and no cause of action should lie against DOT DM in such event.
