ICA Releases Annotated Domain Name Purchase Agreement

Do you know what belongs in a purchase agreement?  What rights are you selling?  What liabilities are you assuming?  How will disputes be resolved?  Are you acquiring full rights to the domain name you are purchasing?

All these are questions that should be addressed in a domain name purchase agreement.  The ICA worked with some of the top domain name attorneys to develop an annotated domain name purchase agreement.  Our goal is to educate domain investors and to benefit the industry as a whole by providing this sample agreement.  It is robust and incorporates decades of experience in buying and selling domain names.  It may be particularly helpful to those new to the domain name industry who are newly buying and selling domain names on their own and may not have a domain name agreement at hand.

This agreement is for educational purposes only.  Many marketplaces and brokers have standard agreements that they use.  The circumstances of each transaction are unique.  An experienced domain name attorney should be consulted to review the circumstances of your purchase to ensure that the agreement adequately addresses the risks and contingencies that arise from your specific transaction.

This is a living document and will likely be revised and developed over time.  You can check back to view the latest version.

We hope you find this useful.  Feedback is welcome.
