Apart from various policies implemented by Registrars of Domain
names both in Iran and aboard, any dispute arising from unauthorized
use of a prior registered identical or similar trademark by third
parties as a domain name can be dealt with according to the newly
enacted Iranian E-Commerce Act (2004) which clearly provides strong
provisions against violators and infringers of rights arising
from such registration of trademarks.
Article 70 of the said Act, unauthorized use of prior registered
identical or similar trademarks by third parties as domain names
is considered an act of infringement and violators shall be sentenced
to a term in prison for a period of one year to three years and
payment of a fine from 10,000,000 Rials to 100,000,000 Rials.
