Domain name management company Com Laude announced its acquisition of Edinburgh-based Demys yesterday.
Demys, which provides domain name management and online brand protection services, has clients in the UK automotive, retail/leisure, media and FMCG sectors.
As part of its brand protection services, Demys operates an “in-house domain watching service and strategic expertise in the monitoring of online brand infringement”.
Demys specialises in dispute resolution work—two members of the team are panellists for Nominet (the .uk registry), with one of them also being a World Intellectual Property Organization and Czech Arbitration Court expert panellist too.
Nick Wood, managing director of Com Laude, said: “The addition of their online brand protection services will help us to deliver greater value to brands who want to protect their online IP.”
Andrew Lothian, managing director of Demys, added that by joining forces with Com Laude, Demys will be able to provide a more robust offering to the market.
“The chance to build on our expertise in domain disputes and domain watching will deliver a wider offering for the many brand owners, channel partners and law firms that are customers of Com Laude,” he said.
