The Domain Disputes Committee is an independent body of the Estonian Internet Foundation that solves domain disputes, offering extrajudicial protection against domain name hijacking and profiteering. The advantage of this independent Domain Disputes Committee compared to a state court is in saving time, i.e. a trademark proprietor complaining about domain name hijacking can get a solution much more quickly here than when addressing the matter to a court. Turning to the Domain Disputes Committee does not mean relinquishing the option of protecting your rights via judicial proceedings.
In today's world, secure and effective personal identification of end users is becoming more and more important in order to protect both companies and service users from possible bad guys and theft. In addition to security, the convenience and flexibility of the solution cannot be left behind. For this very purpose, the Estonian Internet Foundation has created the eeID personal identification service, which offers a strong authentication solution with an international reach.
Every year, the Estonian Internet Foundation (EIF) supports projects and activities that contribute to the development of Internet-related knowledge. Thereby, we contribute to the development and growth of the local internet community. The beginning of the year is a good time to take a look at the results of the projects and activities supported in 2023.
