Hi thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Is the committee a limited company? If not how is it structured? Is the domain unique to the committee? Kind regards AJ
Hi thank you. The cheapest way of resolving a domain name dispute is to use the ICANN dispute resolution service https://www.icann.org - failing this you would have to go to court and get an injunction forcing the return of the property. When she was instructed to register the domain name were those instructions given over email, was it obvious she was doing this on behalf of the company? Would the national charity support your claim?
In relation to the Facebook posts are these abusive or defamatory in nature? Kind regards AJ
Hi thank you. An injunction could have the effect you are seeking but I doubt it would need to go this far. Is it possible she is ignoring you because she does not know how serious the issue is - you could get the charity lawyers to write her a cease and desist letter to stop using the intellectual property of the committee and abusing its goodwill - if she sees a letter from a solicitor that gives it the added gravitas that this issue is causing expense and loss and therefore she should take the dispute seriously. An injunction could end up costing her £10k in costs.
