Abstract: Internet today has revolutionized the world of communication; it has brought the whole world at the click of the mouse. It has removed all the trade barriers and has transformed the world into a small village. But as there is a growth in the Net subsequently a rise in interaction between more and more number of people, so arises a dispute with the interface, viz. the Internet. The growth of web sites has also given rise to a new area of disputes- domain name disputes. This article has tried to analyse the position of law (before the notification of the Trade Marks Act, 1999) governing such a tort in other countries in comparison to India, and also such other international bodies, which have tried to allay the fears of genuine users, and bring them respite.
