If you believe that you are entitled to a Domain Name that has already been registered in ccTLD .it, or if you believe that someone is wrongfully using such a Domain Name, you can compel that person/business to participate in a Domain Name Administrative Proceeding.
An Administrative Proceeding is a process in which two parties present their respective views of a conflict about a domain name to a neutral and impartial third party, the panel. The panel will hear the parties' claims in conformity with Italian Naming Authority rules. After both parties have had a fair chance to make their case, the panel, after deliberation, will issue a decision that is binding on the parties.
The Administrative Proceeding process is generally faster and cheaper than using the courts. Panelists are intellectual property and trademark experts.
The rules governing the Administrative Proceeding are similar to the ones set by ICANN for gTLD .com, .org and .net.
