Standing firm for a safe and open internet
How to win a lawsuit against a rabbit

Dion Goudkuil

Is the internet an open and safe place and what responsibility should domain registrars play in this field? A complex question with a simple answer. Mijndomein stands for its customers and strives for an open internet. Even if this means that we need to take it to court.

This is what happened in 2011 when Mijndomein was asked to remove content that was posted by a customer of Mijndomein on its blog platform. In the blog, cartoons from Miffy were used as a parody and the Brand owners of Miffy objected. Long story short, Mijndomein won the lawsuit for the customer and the blog could stay.

Mijndomein has always been a firm believer in a safe and open internet. It actively supports Bits of Freedom and also plays a role in helping to further professionalize the industry.
