This book looks at the topic of domain names, evaluating the behaviour of domain names within the rule of law as well as their regulatory frameworks.

The book explores the philosophical, procedural, economical, theoretical and scientific contexts which affect the current legal status of domain names, and analyses the current system of adjudication of disputes concerning domain names.

The book looks at the similarities between domain names and trade marks, and how this can be used to determine the property nature of domain names. Drawing on experience from various jurisdictions, including that of the US, Konstantinos Komaitis uses this theory of domain names as property to suggest solutions as to how the regulation of domain names can be reformed.
