Word of mouth is one way to attract customers with good reviews and social media is another way to interact with potential end users. Marketing is thinking about a business or brand and how you can expand it to its full potential. Marketing is not about selling, it is about Company Awareness and Innovation. Marketing is a way to develop a demand for your service or product and fulfilling the customers needs.

Intellectual Property & UDRP
The Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) is a process created by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) for the pupose to resolve disputes regarding the registration of internet domain names. The UDRP applies to all generic top level domains (.com, .net, .org, etc...). In layman terms it is called (Cybersquattng). Cybersquatting is knowing the domain is trademarked.
ICANN set up (UDRP) as it realized there was a problem registering domain names that were trademarked and were being registered without the trademark owners permission. "The Trademark Dilemma". This prevented the trademark owner suing the resistrars and protected them from liability claims. This meant by the late 1990s, that there was a problem likely to mislead consumers. In the United Kingdom, the Court of Appeal described such domain names as "an instrument of fraud".
One of ICANN's initial steps was to commission the United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO - World Intellectual Property Organization ) to create and provide details regarding the contention amongst trademarks and domain names. It was published on 30 April 1999, the WIPO Report suggested the foundation of an "obligatory authoritative technique concerning fraudulent enlistments", which would take into consideration a "nonpartisan setting with regards to question that are regularly worldwide in nature." The method was not expected to manage cases with contending rights, nor would it avoid the purview of the courts. It would, notwithstanding, be obligatory as in "every area name application, would in the space name understanding be required to submit to the strategy if a claim was started against it by a third party.
The WIPO Report sets out the now familiar three stage test of the UDRP.
After the creation of the law ICANN had implemented the UDRP was launched on 1 December 1999, and the first case was tried under it by WIPO was World Wrestling Federation Entertainment, Inc v. Michael Bosman, involving the domain name worldwrestlingfederation.com For other high profile cases that were taken to trial go to :http://www.hallofshame.com/rdnh-cases/
