The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy is an arbitration procedure designed to quickly and relatively inexpensively resolve disputes over domain names. A complaining party brings an arbitration complaint and alleges and hopes to prove that the domain name was registered in bad faith because it incorporates the trademark or service mark of the complaining party. The arbitrator is limited to the relief that it can grant to either, transferring the domain name to the complaining party, or canceling the domain name registration.
The rights of a minority shareholder when there’s a breach of fiduciary duty or malfeasance by management really depends on the jurisdiction that’s applicable. For instance, in Delaware, the shareholders may be limited to breach of fiduciary duty claims, whereas in other states like New Jersey, there might be an oppressed shareholder statute that would allow the court to grant certain relief to oppress shareholders.
The right of publicity gives a person the right to prevent others to use their name, likeness, voice, image, pictures, for commercial purposes. In some jurisdictions, like New York, it is required that a written release be obtained prior to using, for commercial purposes, somebody’s name or likeness.
A litigation hold notice, depending on the jurisdiction, may require you to preserve all relevant evidence related to the claim or defense. If that is the case, you should designate who the custodians are of the potential relevant information and determine where that information may reside. If it is a former employee, it may be on devices or computers that that former employee worked on or used. If it’s current employees then, obviously, those devices. It may also be personal devices used by company employees, so it’s not limited to just company equipment.
You have to look at the policy to determine if the coverage is there. But often times homeowner’s or renter’s insurance does cover liability for defamation, which includes libel and slander as well as invasion of privacy. If it’s not in that coverage and you have umbrella coverage, you should also check that policy as well.
